Cincinnati Wedding Photographer:: shooting wedding photos with an iPhone. YES, AN iPHONE.
So, this one time, I went to Florida and helped photograph a wedding.
I was in charge of the first look, which I was MORE than PUMPED for.
I’m outside, hanging with the groom, testing my light before the bride arrives,
and THIS is the shot I get….
Um. That could be a problem.
You know, if that’s as bad as it was going to get, I would have been able to live with it.
However, it got A LOT WORSE. As in, I couldn’t see anything.
NOT A DARN THING.
BUT, I have amazing, incredible, best of the best friends.
And, while I’m having a meltdown, they are saying JUST BREATHE.
So I did. And then I borrowed an iPhone. And I shot the first look.
And THIS PICTURE.
This one below… THIS made it all ok.
I get SO hung up on technicalities. ALL. OF. THE. TIME.
I miss what’s important – THIS moment, where my favorite groom saw my favorite bride for the first time…
that’s what I was there to document for them. Be it by Canon or by Apple.
So, friends (and, of course, my man), thanks for keeping my head on straight.
I don’t know what I’d do with you and your patience, your understanding, and your cell phones. :)
