kaari + cam (a.k.a. my first wedding photography experience)

Over the weekend I had the amazing opportunity to photograph my first wedding. Kaari, a friend from high school, called me up earlier in the year and asked if I would take pictures for her wedding in North Carolina. Of course I said yes! I spent the last few weeks leading up to it freaking out a little bit, naturally. A wedding is a huge deal and I'd never done anything like it before.. ever.

It helped that I had such beautiful people to photograph, but I am pretty happy with how they turned out! I thought I would share some of my favorites. I also want to thank Kaari a million times over for thinking of me for the job. They had a beautiful wedding outside in the North Carolina heat, barely dodging a tropical storm that was amusingly named after the bride's mother.

It was definitely a learning experience, but so much fun. Bonus, it was first time being in North Carolina. Sweet tea? Yes please.

Any more experienced wedding photographers out there with advice for a beginner?

Wow! Awesome job! It's so exciting and nerve racking at the same time. I've never done a wedding, but I felt the same way when I did this even back in December.
