I Don't Do Weddings

Well...that's what I keep telling folks. It's not that I am adversed to shooting a wedding...I just know that they are far from simple undertakings and I have not felt prepared to take on such a challenge at this point in time.

I was asked to help out as a second shooter for a recent wedding. I figured that it would be a good opportunity, and I was very glad I gave it a go. The setting was outdoors at the farm home of the bride's parents just outside of Scholls, Oregon. It was one of the coolest weddings I have been to. A great mix of people and a terrific atmosphere...they even served beer before the ceremony started!

I "stole with pride" a concept from Craig Mitchelldyer, who is an extremely talented wedding photographer, and put together a collage of some of the photos. Overall, I am very pleased with the results. I wouldn't call myself a wedding photographer yet...but I had my first taste and I enjoyed it.
