I don’t shoot weddings anymore and haven’t for a couple of years; I’m happy to leave such things to the likes of Jete @ Urban Fig Photography. (Who, if you are looking for a wedding photog, I highly recommend!! Check her out!) I DO love shooting engagement sessions though, so when my nephew and (now) niece asked me last summer to take their pictures I happily obliged.
This spring Phil and Evalynn asked me if I’d second shoot their wedding with Jete. I told them “I’m sorry! I don’t really do that anymore.” They responded with “oh…we’d really hoped that you would!!” and since they looked so dejected and crestfallen, I promptly assigned myself the very prestigious position of THIRD shooter. I messaged Jete and said “I hope you don’t mind, but I’ll be coming along for the ride!!” :) And so I did. You can check out their wedding pics that the FIRST and SECOND shooter took here. They did a stellar job, as per usual, and probably would have managed without me there…but I/we had fab time shooting together all the same. :D
Since Jete wasn’t going to be shooting the reception, Evalynn asked me if I would mind taking a few shots during the night. Naturally I sighed and said “Phffftt, well, I guess so. I actually hate shooting cute people, bathed in golden evening sunlight, frolicking in orchards, but I’ll make an exception this time.”
It was rough, but I rallied.
Happy wedded life, Phil and Evalynn. :) Thanks for wanting me to shoot you…during the day and the evening. :)
