Ahhhh...May, I have been waiting for you for so long, and now that you are here, you are just as lovely as I imagined. The weather has been great. After last weekend my garden is almost half planted, and filled with tons of fresh new soil. We still have the sore muscles to prove it.
Still the best is yet to come as I wait not so patiently for this. Just 23 days, 23 hours, 51 minutes, but whose counting? And, on that same day a wedding! The more I think about it the more excited I am. It is my first official wedding and if I am not here much until then, it is because I am off reading, planning and practicing, how to best tell the story of their day. I know some of you photograph weddings frequently, any advice? The photos above are from my flickr favorites, be sure to visit their links below, and be prepared to be inspired!

Oooh, I adore the day of sore muscles after a strenuous day of beautifying one's yard. I could almost say there is only one greater reward: birth. May is the loveliest month.

Congratulations on your first wedding! Advice? Let yourself have butterflies. I have been shooting wedding professionally for the last 3 or 4 years, and I still get little flutters :).

You have an advantage because you're already so comfortable with light and color.

If I had to give one more piece of advice, it would be to remind yourself that you know what you are doing, and to hold the day loosely.

Sometimes I still get anxious because I so want my clients to love their images, but I instantly calm down when I say, "Hey, you know what? You totally know how to do this." It also helps me to "hold the day loosely" as I said. Occasionally you have to orchestrate to get the images to happen, but I think all the magic is in the moments where people are just living into the day.

Happy picture making! I am sure they will be beautiful! Thanks for all the inspiration you give.

I have covered 5 weddings and each time i feel anxious and nervous.it all depends on the couple.if they are the cuddly romantic types they will love all the photos you do.and take lots and lots of pictures
because in the end as it usually happens their favorite shot will be the one you took as a after thought or one when they were not even posing. good luck i know you will do really well.
