So a few years ago, I made the decision to stop doing any kind of wedding photography. As a full time physical therapist, it was just too time consuming for me to work my regular job and try to maintain a wedding photography business. Plus, I've always found weddings to be stressful - you really only get one shot. You can't "re-do" a wedding if the client hates the pictures! So that was it.
But last weekend, I was a bridesmaid in my cousin Samantha's wedding. It was held at an amazingly gorgeous venue near Springfield, IL. Both of my uncles (one being the bride's dad) are excellent photographers and they were the ones taking pictures at this wedding. They let me play with their cameras for a bit during the wedding, and it was so much fun! Since I wasn't the one in charge, it was much less stressful. So here are a few shots I took. But don't get your hopes up too high... I still don't foresee any more wedding photography in my near future. At least not for now ;-)
