Photographing My First Wedding?

Last modified on February 11th, 2007

Sometime this summer, my friends Mike and Kim are gonna finally tie the knot together and live happily ever after. I’ve known about their wedding for a few weeks now, but tonight they stepped up and asked me to officially photograph their wedding for them. To be honest, I’ve been asked before by other people, mostly over a few drinks, and up until now I’ve basically always politely declined, mainly because I didn’t think I could pull it off properly and do it justice.

So, after spending a few hours mulling it over tonight, I finally realized that I’m probably ready. Not only that, but most everyone at the wedding has known me for a very long time, I think I’ll be able to push the envelope a little further than another photographer would, since I know most of the nuances of the people who will be there. That’s not to say I’m overconfident about it. To be honest, shooting a wedding is pretty intimidating — you only get one shot to capture this moment forever. But with some research and lots of practice before the day comes, I think it will be just fine.

So, Mike and Kim, I hope you’re ready!
