I had an awesome opportunity over Christmas break. Tiffani and Jon Decker allowed me the special privilege of capturing their beautiful wedding! Even though, by the end of the day I was exhausted, I can truly say I had a fantastic time! It definitely helped that Tiffani and Jon were so fun and easy to work with. Tiff even did some “work” beforehand (yeah!), by checking out her pinterest board I got some great ideas of what she was looking for in a photographer. Side note, I love pinterest. Tiff and Jon thank you so much for the amazing opportunity and here’s to wishing you the best in your new marriage!
Also, I definitely need to thank my helpers and encouragers; my right hand woman/dress-fixer/prop-holder, Francesca, and my handsome man Gray/back-up-photographer. There are a lot of small events that contribute to the large event on a wedding day (i.e. getting ready, unity candle, first dance, just to name a few), and they truly helped my cover all the bases. I have to say, making sure I was in the middle of everything was difficult, but extremely rewarding. At times it didn’t help that I’m a really big perfectionist, I need to learn that getting frustrated with myself when I miss the chance to capture “the perfect shot,” isn’t worth it (after all I’m not perfect even though I wish I were), I just need to say “oh well” and look for the next chance because it will come. Overall, for my first wedding, if I’m not too critical I think I did pretty well. But don’t take it from me, judge for yourself! I do believe I made the bride and groom happy and to be honest, that’s what matters most to me. So without further ado, here’s a snapshot of their day . . .
