1. HOLY CRAP...I need more lenses, I need to practice more, I need to learn my new (used) Canon 20D, we have no flash, we need extra batteries, and I need to practice more...and I need to practice...and did I mention practice?
2. (At this point I closed my eyes then took a deep breath.) BRING IT!
I was scared out of my mind but so excited at the same time. I've never felt this excited before. It's something I can't really explain in words and the best way I can describe it is at that moment I wanted to pee my pants.
But boy, I was never prepared to hear what Chris had to tell me next. After he noticed I had calmed down a bit, he casually mentioned, "Oh...and the wedding is next weekend."
I was beyond hysterical at this point and might have blacked out. But when I came to, Chris and I divulged a plan to make sure this was going to be one of the most exciting experiences ever.
SaraLeigh and Ryan are tying the knot Saturday, January 15th at the Seattle Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park. I will be dedicating a special entry to the newly weds when their wedding pictures are ready to blog. In the meantime, Chris and I had only today to visit the wedding site so we can acclimate ourselves to the environment and below are some of the pictures we took.
This first set was taken by Chris:
This is a moving shot...where I was walking towards Chris as he was shooting me. See the air through my hair? Romantic eh? The focus was a little bit off though as my face came out a little blurry. Something to work on. :)
Ahh...this would be a great shot if I didn't cover my face with the camera!
And below are some from the set I shot:
There's nothing sexier than a guy with a camera and a pink/brown bag!
I was trying to be all artsy behind this small tree shooting behind these branches. But eh...it was worth a shot. Chris was turned too much to his right and my branches didn't show much.
Well there you go! It was a great day of practice shooting for us so it doesn't need to be said how excited we are for next weekend. We'll continue to practice practice practice in the upcoming week so stay tuned for some more photos. I realize this entry is a long one, but hopefully you've enjoyed the pics we took. Thank you for stopping by!
