More Photography

Apparently when I say I am through with photography, I lie.  A couple of weeks ago I did a wedding shoot for my husbands cousin.  It was fun, but insane.  It happened to be the hottest day of the year at 97 degrees and felt like 107 with the heat index.  I think I was close to heat exhaustion after shooting for almost two hours in the sun and then another few hours in the chapel which while it was suppose to have air conditioning, it was reading near 90 in there.  Also I didn't bring water.  I guess I assumed there would be some there.  There was a water fountain but it's pretty hard to keep running inside for a drink while you are suppose to be working.  When I got to the reception I drank 3 diet cokes in about 5 minutes. Lesson learned, always bring your own water.

That said, it was a beautiful wedding and I was happy to be a part of it.  I also made all of the bouquets and boutonnières and even though I was a little out of practice I loved the way they came out.  I even made two garters for the wedding, but I didn't get a great shot of those.  I'm always happy to be a part of weddings, especially when they are for two lovely people who are obviously perfect for one another.  Emily and Shane, thank you for letting me be part of your day and brush up on some of my rusty skills.  I know you are going to be crazy happy together!
