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.
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 =)
