I was really fortunate that Lori Bledsoe contacted me on my facebook page to take photos at her wedding in June. Not only for the obvious reason of getting a job, but this was my first professional wedding shoot. I didn't want to disappoint and I was nervous! Then Lori walked in and we met for the first time. She was an angel of mercy! She paid me up front and was just happy to be getting married. I took every photo I could think of throughout the ceremony and the reception. Lori made no special requests but I wanted to make sure I had enough photos and details of the day.
See, I know that people often don't appreciate the importance of a photo when its being taken. It's only afterward that they realize just how special capturing that moment was. You don't forget the things that happen on your wedding day. But after a few years go by, do you remember just how your bridesmaid looked when she realized your ring was still tucked safely in her bra when it comes time to place it on your beloved's hand? Will you remember that everyone was supposed to wear the same color of purple and the best man's tie was the wrong shade? Probably not, but photos don't lie and so I had to make sure nobody would remember!
When I was asked to change the color of his tie, I didn't hesitate, it was all they asked of me! It was actually a very simple edit to make and I was glad to do it, because a few years down the road, when the memories fail and the pictures tell the story, they will say that everyone matched flawlessly... and they lived happily ever after.
