Last month I had the pleasure of doing my first destination wedding. It was a fun trip there, with a lot happening in just a few days. I learned a lot of lessons, stressed too much, but over all had a lot of fun. After 5 hours on my feet running back and forth to get my pics, the adrenaline ran out and I was exhausted. But that was only the beginning of my job, because I then had 1,300 pictures to go through, and edit around 300 of. By the time I was finished, I had 339 pictures edited.
Here's some of my favorites.
~Carroll and Charlotte's wedding~
Guys, I could not have special ordered a more beautiful bridal pics setting. Everything was gorgeous, the lighthouse, the two story house, the boardwalk, the beach, the sun setting, the tide coming in, the woods, and the Blue Angels flying overhead. I was in photographer/nature lover heaven.
