Sometimes it's hard to see photography as work. Sure, when I'm doing the bookkeeping it feels like work, but when I'm out on a shoot, it's so much fun!
This past weekend I went back to my hometown to shoot a wedding & squeezed in a trash the dress session while I was there! It wasn't a normal session, it was a post-divorce trash the dress, and the gorgeous lady had lost weight & no longer fit into her wedding dress!
We had to get a little creative, but I think it worked... and man, did we ever trash the dress!
Then the next day I got to capture a beautiful, sophisticated wedding with a really fun-loving bridal party. I've known the bride indirectly for years- we went to the same high school, were in band together, worked at the same summer camp where her dad was the head guy, and went to the same college, but it wasn't until we worked at the same place after college that we really got to know each other.
Every detail about the wedding was so perfect.
I mean, really... look at that bridal party. Don't they look so fun to hang out with?
And yes, we slightly blocked traffic, but really, it's their wedding day & it's a small town. Instead of getting upset, people rolled their windows down to say congratulations!
What did you do this weekend? Did you burn a wedding dress? :)
