So, last week he texted "begging" me to be a 3rd shooter at a wedding. Yes, 3rd shooter.
I texted back, "Uh, who has a 3rd shooter?? Why are you asking me? You must be really desperate."
I, of course, agree to be his wallflower photographer. My job was to not look as clueless.
He then says these 2 things, "Just have fun....seriously no pressure....BUT take good pictures..."
Uhhhh what what?!
To make a long story short, I clearly need more wedding experience! Nervousness aside, it was fun. It was interesting to see what equipment they used for lighting, their team huddles to make sure everyone was on the same page, and how efficient they were. It's not quite like what I do as a day job:) Everyone was very nice and the 2nd shooter, Cody, let me follow him around like a puppy dog :) Poor guy.
Remember my new friend Mallory? Here's a picture of her. I like to put a face with the name. Isn't she pretty? She's single fella's *wink wink* LOL - cuz I'm sure my blog has a huge male following.
Now onto my first senior photos :) Meet Ashley and Lynnzey. If you couldn't tell, they are BFF and they are the Class of 2013! When I graduated high school (1999), these beautiful girls were 4! In my head, 30 doesn't sound that old, but I'm sure to the class of 2013, 30 means death is around the corner.
As expected, it started out a bit awkward. They weren't sure what to do with their hands or how to sit, but luckily we figured it out. By the second location, they started warming up to me...it helped when I asked about my husband (he's their art teacher).
Me, "So is he just as nerdy in school as he is at home??"
The girls, "Oh yeah, definitely. He always talks about Star Wars and stuff..."
Me, "...I'm sorry"
I mean what do you say when your husbands students confirm he's a nerd ALL THE TIME? I chose to apologize, lol.
Anyways, here are a few more photos from their shoot. They did an awesome job and they were so much fun!
By far, my favorite shot :) See, I'll say it a thousand times, the fun ones are the best.
