For the time being my blog is all out of order so I’m taking you back to February of this year to Monica and Hernan’s Fallbrook wedding. I’ve been very fortunate this year to work with some really wonderful couples. I don’t take as many weddings as I used to these days because after nearly twenty years, a full day of shooting takes it’s toll physically. But here’s the thing, when I meet a couple like Monica and Hernan, I gotta go with it. I know eventually I will sound like a broken record but it means so much to me to work with couples that trust me and allow me to do my job in the way I enjoy it the most.
I still get sick to my stomach before every wedding and I was especially keyed up before this one because February is an “off” month for portraits and weddings. I can only describe it as an out of body experience when I pick up my camera again after having a few weeks off. I have to push back all the thoughts of self doubt and tell myself just do one thing at a time. It’s weird how when I get a break from doing the thing I love most that all the fear kicks in but I guess that also means I really love my job and I want to do it well.
So here I was freaking out on the inside and smiling on the outside. I think I pulled it off! But of course, Monica and Hernan were cool customers and made it all so easy for me. Plus I love working at a venue where I can just park my car, shoot prep, ceremony and reception without having to change location. It just means more shooting and more photos!
Since I can’t seem to think of what else to tell you about this wedding other than it was awesome, I’ll just share the photos with you.
