    Default I'm Back

    Texas was HOT HOT HOT!

    Kelly, so sorry I missed your suggestion to meet up. I would have loved to if you were close. We were about 20 minutes from Austin. If that's close to you...we'll have to meet up next time I'm there.

    The wedding was outside and we dealt with all sorts of difficult situations. The ceremony was supposed to start at 7pm, but it started to rain at about 6:30. The wedding was small and taking place in front of my Dad's house. Because of the rain, all of the bride's pre-wedding portraits had to be done in a very small cramped bedroom. The actual photographer handled it very well. I'll share some of my pictures later. I really just tried to stay out of the photographer's way as much as possible and mostly took some candids.

    Because of the rain delay...the ceremony didn't actually start until about 8pm...after dark! Now...this is NOT my forte. There was only one thing to bounce the flash off of....a roman style arch with columns that lit up that they rented for the day to get married in front of, and I let the photographer do all of that work, so my ceremony pictures were all just taken from my seat and they are horrendous. Really, this trip exposed some of my weaknesses.

    I'm just so glad to be home. It was a difficult and exhausting trip. Nathan was so off schedule and while he was really good most of the time, when he was cranky....he was very difficult. We were worried about wasps and scorpions the whole time as the were plentiful.

    Can't wait to get to work on the newborn shoot I did before I left and play with the shots I did get at the wedding. I'll share as soon as I can.

    Wasps and scorpions! That's too bad about the rain and the ceremony in the dark. Can't wait to see some shots.

    It's so nice to see you back! I know, Texas is hot and humid...I bet you love being back in Cali.

    I really do hope you give me a call next time you're here. The kids and I would totally drive down to see you and Nathan in a heart beat!

    welcome back. Where you at least able to learn something from the wedding photographer? While it sucks that you had a hard time if you were able to learn something then thats at least a positive.
