Grooms Seeing Their Brides for the First Time

Making this blog post should not have been as much of an emotional roller coaster as it turned out to be. 

In looking for these photos, I had to go deep into my external harddrives to weed them out. What I saw in these depths was not pretty. I couldn't even bring myself to use all of my options for this blog post! In some weddings I COMPLETELY MISSED the groom's first look. 

  Dear god, Andrea. What were you thinking with those settings?!

Dear god, Andrea. What were you thinking with those settings?!

The embarrassment set in pretty darn fast as I went through these photos and saw just how TERRIBLE they were. But I realized something as well. What people look back on fifty years from now at the photos I have given them, they won't be looking at the technical abilities of the photographer; they'll be looking at the faces of loved ones as they appeared back then. 

I can be pretty hard on myself when it comes to my business but I know sometimes I need to cut myself some slack. This isn't about me. I've only been doing weddings for a year and I know I have so much left to learn and so much to improve on. At least I got one lesson out of the way today =)

AND NOW FOR THE ACTUAL POINT OF THIS BLOG POST:
