Happy Friday! I thought a wedding might be a cheery way to end the week. Hope you enjoy.
As I mentioned before, Dave and I spent one Saturday in May photographing some dear friends’ wedding. It was a small wedding and simple enough not to overwhelm us. Capturing such an important day for people we care about was no small task! We were a little nervous about messing up (or at least I was, Dave had the time of his life).
I struggled the most with lighting and keeping noise out of the pictures. However, with some help from Photoshop and Camera Raw, I am happy with the results. I keep reminding myself that I’m an amateur and to hold myself to a standard of grace not perfection. My first inclination would be to never show these to anyone, because I only see the mistakes. But just like the wedding isn’t about the photographer, these pictures aren’t for me or about me. They’re for Morgan and Greg. They tell a small but important part of their story. And I pray that my contribution will help them fondly remember their special day for decades to come.
Greg and Morgan’s love story reaches all the way back to high school. I have memories of third wheeling with them on the way to classes and at our senior prom. They got back together after college and quickly achieved old couple-like relationship status. It has been one of my biggest joys that they like Dave and that all 4 of us can be close. Finding old friends is hard and keeping them is harder. I couldn’t stop smiling as I took these pictures.
Since these two are usually a more privately affectionate couple, it was so sweet to see their love for each other on their wedding day. Morgan and Greg are such down to earth and genuine people that I have no doubt they will bless those around them for years to come.
Congratulations, friends. Thank you for sharing your wedding and your lives with us.
