Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: A wedding I'm not shooting.
BlogMenu

May 7, 2008

A wedding I'm not shooting.

I'm in Peru right now.

Ok, Peru, Illinois.

This week, my travels have taken me in a small city outside of Chicago to do something different.

Be in a wedding.

I haven’t been in a wedding since I started shooting them a few years ago, so it should be an interesting experience to participate in a wedding now from the perspective of a bridesmaid. My friend said she wanted me to simply enjoy myself by being in the wedding, not shooting it, so I’m not quite sure what I am going to do with myself without my camera. Major withdrawals! I also won’t have a date! Originally my mom was supposed to come with me as my “plus one” to also celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend for a fun girl’s weekend in Chicago before the wedding, but my dad has come down with some emergency-room related health issues (please keep him in your prayers!) she had to tend to, so for this wedding I will be “minus one.” No mom, no boyfriend, no camera. What is a wedding photographer to do with nothing to do at a wedding?

My girlfriend getting married is my friend Chrissy who was my BFF in high school. Though she moved to Illinois for college and we don’t get to hang as much these days, it is awesome when you can keep in touch with friends and celebrate their special day with them all these years later! Here’s a photo from Spring Break 2000 that I grabbed from the blog entry when I blogged about our other good high school friend Michele (far left), whose wedding I just shot in March. Now it’s Chrissy’s turn (second from right)! Megan, (second from left) the red head has already been married for years, so hmmmm, last but not least, looks like I’ll be next in line! wink wink (Oh gosh, everytime I look at the blonde hair phase, I shake my head!)

Congrats Chrissy! I know you will be a beautiful bride!

I'm praying for you dad! Healthy vibes sent his way :)
It's weird being on that side of a wedding. It was especially weird for me shooting my cousins wedding, which I'll blog soon. Seeing my family in a family shot and I wasn't in it was veery weird. Have a safe trip and let us know how dad is!!

When I found your site, my jaw dropped wide open....we have almost the same look, lol...it was amazing, but more than that...I'm in awe of your work! Through the last few days every time I need a some ispiration to keep going (things have been tough), I go to your site and just watch the beauty flash by. I just wanted to say thank you, you've made hoping a little bit easier!!!

CONGRATS to Chrissy! Go Mustangs ;-)

Have fun in Chicago :) And enjoy the wedding--though, I am sure it's gonna be hard to be away from your camera during the ceremony ;-)

Kara- Yay! So can't wait to hang out more!

Christina- I'm so very thankful for your prayers for my dad!

Roark Design- Wow, great minds think alike with the pink stripes! Small world! I'm glad my words could help encourage you!

Autumn and Monica- Awesome that you are so close by. I wish I had time to hang, but I'm tied up in wedding stuff and trying to catch up on editing in my hotel room in the meantime.

Cory- Ha, yeah go Mustangs! Man, it's been ages since I've said that!

Rachie- Ha, yep you've been through every hair color with me!

Jona- Wow, you are so sweet to do that. I truly appreciate your efforts and prayers!

But those were the days, so much fun!

Chrissy congratulations again, Wish I could be there.

Shutterbug, thanks for the prayers, they have been working!

Michele- Ha, I know about the pic, but I didn't have time to find and scan a new one while I was out of town. :-)
