The crazy day. Met the bride at the salon at 1:00p.m. I know the salon owner well she was running behind so in between taking pictures of the bride she asked me if I wanted to help, well I used to be a hairdresser and it was really getting late so I did the matron of owner's hair so any way that wasn't to bad compared to when we arrived at the place where the bride was getting married and also getting ready. Well I really felt sorry for her because Oh my gosh I was hoping to get some really amazing pictures of her but the room had old time pictures side by side in the whole room oh and they would not come off of the wall. There wasn't an empty space to take any good pictures at all, so I just made do. I wanted this fantastic picture of her dress well the only place we could hang it was in the bathroom so I'm going to try and hopefully think of something in PS to make that look better. Let me back up for a minute. From the moment we arrived people would not leave her alone they kept asking her questions and besides me trying to take some pictures and set a few up. OH, I would set up a shot and not only did I have a calvary of people with cameras taking pictures behind me "Including the other photographer" that had a point & shoot canon camera and used on camera flash through the whole night. I told her the night before that what my formals were going to be of the B&G well everywhere I went and every shot I took, I had about 10 people or more following me around including the other photographer. I told them they had to back up because when I would go to back up I would be running into someone the B&G and I were informed that I had 5 minutes to get these pictures that I was looking so forward into getting away from the ugly building that they got married in, sorry but it looked like the inside of a barn. So anyway they had the bride so stressed out, also including me it is a wonder that the pics I wanted so bad turned out at all. It was like this the whole night.The bride was so stressed she was in tears. Oh have to tell you this. Before the wedding started I was in place for the ceremony to start the other photographer/woman came over to me a said " Now you know you can't stay in the middle isle for the wedding don't you" well I just looked at her and, I and said yes I'm quite aware of that the only time that I'm going to be in the center isle is when I want to be in the center isle. Aren't I the funny one! Well she was backing up all over her self and said " Oh yes I'm not trying to tell you what to do". I politely said yes I know your not, so let's just get some good pictures and went to where I was going to be standing as the wedding started. I still caught myself being on the side lines just for what she said and by doing that I missed some wide shots that should have been taken:frown:. There is so much more but that is the highlights. So any way it was the most un-organized wedding that I had ever been too let alone try to shoot. Gosh I sound like a teenager telling this story. ANYWAY THEY LOVE THE PICTURES EVEN THOUGH I SEE A MILLION THINGS I COULD HAVE DONE BETTER!! DO I THINK THAT I WANT TO BE A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER "NO"!! I WAS A 2ND SHOOTER AT A WEDDING LAST SATURDAY AND I WOULD MUCH RATHER DO THAT EVEN THOUGH IN THIS WEDDING I WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THE MAIN PHOTOGRAPHER. AS MOST OF YOU KNOW I TOLD THE COUPLE THAT I WAS NOT READY TO DO A WEDDING, BUT IT WAS EITHER ME OR OR PICTURES WITH A POINT & SHOOT, NOT THAT MINE ARE ANY BETTER. BELIEVE ME I'M NOT GIVING MYSELF A PAT ON THE BACK BY ANY MEANS. I'm not sure I really like my PS on this photo. My daughter with the bride. They have known eachother since they were 5 years old. Should have been down center isle Dad giving her a hug. Should have been further back but I had already been told I had 5 minutes to finish and I was fighting to back up from the whole group behind me. They were having a hard time with a audience, so they just laughed. Not sure I like the selective B&W Her Dad shaking things up a little. This PS effect came from my good friend Kurt on the Cafe.
