The 24 hours prior went fast. We were busy. Ticking off the check list, getting nearer to relaxing. When we finally stopped and had our nails painted, we began to chat about the morning to come and how we thought the day was set to go…
The morning came and with it – raindrops. Not what one hopes for on their wedding morning, but it didn’t stop any of the excitement, or laughter or happiness that came on my sisters wedding morning. As the make up was applied and the hair sprayed, and the dresses put on. One by one the wedding party was departing, off to where the rest of the day would unfold.
My sister looked beautiful, and was so graceful throughout the day. I wasn’t the photographer for the day,but I did manage to get a few in at home and the preparations.
Lee-Anne & Asa, I know you are in Cuba at the moment sunning yourselves, but I hope you had a glorious day… and I pray that you have a happy and blessed life together. Here are a few of my images… (starting from the bottom may give a better running order)
>It was a year ago, yesterday. I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect. I stood near the front in the best position I thought and it was ok. I was just thrilled that someone trusted me to take pictures of their wedding day. I did the best I could. At that time.
I now look back and see my technical faults, see where there was room for massive improvement. And where the improvements have been. A year on and I am proud of myself. I have upgraded my equipment, invested in workshops-in myself, become a dedicated daily follow of people that inspire me. I know I am so early on in my journey, in fact I think I have only just begun. I write this as a stepping stone. A mile mark to remind me of the steps that I’m taking and the improvements I am making.
And because a post is always nicer with a picture.
