WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY: round one

As many of you know, I am now an associate photographer at Swiger Photography! Amanda is a well-established, super fun & majorly talented photographer based in Wayne, PA. She has taken me on as her associate and is teaching me all of her wonderful ways (thanks Amanda!).

 

That being said- WEDDINGS.

 

Who ever thought this girl would shoot a wedding? Not me, that’s for sure! But I’m learning new things! And last week Amanda brought me along to her most recent wedding shoot.

It was SUPER FUN! Being able to walk around and take pictures during a church ceremony totally felt like breaking the rules, and it was awesome! Going into it, I was a bit nervous that I wouldn’t know what to do with myself or know where to stand, etc. But once we got to the church and everybody started getting ready for the ceremony, I was in my element! There was so much going on, and so many people doing different things, that there was always something to photograph.

Amanda worked her wedding day magic, and I spent my time documenting things as I saw them happen. I was able to capture several genuine moments (even in an oddly lit church without a flash!) and I’m super pleased with how my shots came out!

That being said, I will definitely be doing more wedding photography in 2017!
