I Take Wedding Pictures Sometimes


I saved up for almost a whole year to buy my DSLRSince then, I've been annoying Jordan by taking my camera with me everywhere all in the name of practice. He gets super embarrassed by it, but that doesn't stop me.

I've been trying hard to learn more about photography. I know that a lot of people consider themselves a photographer, and I am definitely not a professional, but it's a hobby I have a lot of fun with. 

Recently, I was asked to be the second photographer for two weddings, one in April and one in May.

I wasn't the main photographer, so I wasn't in charge of getting the high-profile shots. I mostly caught candid shots and pictures from different angles. I was super nervous, but it was a lot of fun! I still have a lot to learn, but I'm thankful for the people who have let me get some practice in.

Here are some of my favorite shots.

You may remember Ryan + Sarah from the engagement pictures I took last year.

  1. Great pictures! I wouldn't have guessed you weren't the primary photographer. Can't wait to see what you do next!

  2. I also take mine everywhere in the hopes that I will get to practice...much to the embarrassment of my family ") Your photos are beautiful!

  3. Amazing! You capture the beauty and emotion of the day so well! Great job :)

  4. Lovely pictures!! I think you'll have many more chances in your future based on those. :)

  5. I think your photog skills are amazing and only getting more amazing. Couldn't have done it without you! Amen.

  6. How fun to actually shoot at a wedding! Wahoo. That's awesome!

  7. these are such great pictures!! I love the orange colors of the first few!

  8. Great job! I'd be so nervous to shoot at a wedding, too! I love learning about photography... my sister in law is a talented wedding photographer, so I have a lot to live up to, but it also means that the whole family (and especially my husband) is used to someone lugging their camera around and taking pictures of everything!

  9. Niiiice. You know I had a friend who asked about 5 photography friends to all bring their cameras rather than 1 pro & her wedding photos are this amazingly beautiful variety. It's such a good call. And yours look just lovely.

  10. I wish I'd known you three and a half years ago. My wedding pictures were so bad, I cried and I haven't made an album of our wedding, and I never look at the pictures. Our photographer was awful. These photos are lovely, just lovely!!!! and I wish you'd photographed our wedding. You have some serious talent in many different areas... I'm constantly amazed by what you do!!
