Last Friday I had 50 of my closest friends and family watch me shoot a wedding. Good thing I didn’t realize this till after the day was over. I might of passed out if I thought about this as I was getting everybody together for family photos.
The reason why I had everybody watching me….A year ago my cousin asked me to shoot her wedding, and within that year I actually became a professional photographer. Last year I helped David Champagne photograph the last wedding in the family, and this time the torch was passed down to me. It just felt right.
Even though I was the one that caught the bouquet (I am the tallest…so it might of not been a fair fight.)…my other cousins are trying to figure out how they can get married in the next year….lol.
Here’s a photo of the girl cousins in the family (with the boys the count is 13)…The cousins are all really close, even though we live all over California. I feel extremely lucky to have the family I do. Growing up we would go camping every few months, and spend weeks in Mexico…. laying out in the sand or throwing water balloons at each other.
Thanks to Niall I was able to be in the photo!
