Wedding Bells Ring…Are You Listening?

By no means am I an expert on weddings.  My visual storytelling experience with matrimonial ceremonies is limited to serving as photographer at my cousin’s wedding last summer and my friend’s wedding this past Christmas.  But on Saturday, I added another dimension to my wedding repertoire: my first time as wedding videographer.

At 11:30 am, I arrived at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Greensboro.  The bride was Jenny, a friend of a faculty member of Elon who was looking for a last minute person who could record her wedding ceremony for her.  That faculty member contacted me and I said sure!  From my two times as wedding photographer, I know how time-consuming/draining weddings can be.  While the guests are eating, drinking, chatting with friends, or sitting down the photographer is constantly running about taking shots and FOLLOWING THE BRIDE. EVERYWHERE. Luckily for me, Jenny only wanted the ceremony recorded so after that, I was free to go. But I had more fun than I expected I would! The church was beautiful and I felt like I did a really good job which made me really happy because I was able to provide the newlyweds with memories they can cherish of their important day for the rest of their life.

If I get permission from the bride, I would like to put up a condensed, edited version of the wedding together for this blog.  We’ll see if that happens. In the meantime, here are some pictures I’ve taken at my cousin’s and friend’s wedding. Enjoy!

Megan the Bride

So I have been taking pictures, I just haven’t gotten around to posting them on my blog.  (I lost my wire that lets me upload pics from my camera to my computer and then my blog was just being stupid and not letting me post pics.)  So anyway, I will now put up some pictures of my friend Megan from her wedding.  She didn’t have time/money to get a professional photographer, so I was basically running around like a madwoman taking as many pictures for her as I could. Here are some that I took when she was in the back room, getting ready for her big day.
