I recently had the pleasure of assisting a photographer at a wedding at the Montage resort in Laguna Beach. This was something I had wanted to do for some time so when the opportunity was there I grabbed it. I've been using a dslr for quite some time now but my experience is limited to taking pictures of products and art and craft projects. So when I purchased my first personal dslr I knew that taking pictures of people would be quite the learning curve. Gradually I'm making progress and trying to share pictures on my blog here and there.
The couple we photographed were incredibly cute and adorable. It was a small wedding which actually made it much less stressful I'm quite sure. There were only about 20 guests and no bridal party so I cant help but wonder about weddings with 200+ guests and enormous bridal parties. I realize a wedding that size would need an entire team to catch all the important moments. I cant even imagine.
When Ross and I got married, we had a similar size wedding with 15 guests. Big or small - it really doesn't matter. I just wanted to take some great pictures for the bride and groom. By the end of the day, between myself and the lead photographer, we had at least a few thousand pictures.
I have put together just a very small sampling of my pictures from the day. I haven't had the chance to go through all the pictures just yet so my goal is to include ceremony pictures in a future post. These are basically some of my favorites.
Thanks for looking and stay tuned for part 2.
