As well I should be! I haven't been a very good blogger lately, but I promise I have a good excuse. A little less than two weeks ago I photographed my first wedding. It was both exciting and nerve-wracking, but I was lucky enough to have Hayley as my sidekick. Between the two of us we took a little over twelve hundred pictures. It was a beautiful, perfect day, and everything went so smoothly. I found by the end of the day that I wasn't a bit nervous and had really enjoyed myself. I went home and fell into a deep, satisfied sleep. Then I woke up. To twelve hundred pictures. I quickly realized that the work of a wedding photographer has just barely started when the wedding ends. I have to go through every single picture, critique it to decide if it makes the cut, and if it does, begin the editing process. This seemed absolutely overwhelming at first, but I've quickly found a rhythm, and actually find myself nearing the end of the editing process and enjoying it! The pictures will be done just after the two week mark (and only because we're going away for the weekend.) So tell me, everyone, is two and a half weeks too long to wait for wedding pictures? Obviously I can't help it this time, but for future weddings, I would love your input.As a result of all this wedding business, photos of Nora have kind of fallen to the wayside. Well, actually I do have a few I would love to share with you, but they're still on the camera because I have no more room. My computer is full! I have a lot of off loading (is that a word?) of pictures to do before I can upload any more. By the way, any techies (again, is that a word?) want to stop by my house and clean out my hard drive? I'd be very much obliged. Until that happens, or I figure out how to do it myself, this blog will be sadly lacking in photos of Nora. Try not to cry. They'll come, eventually, and when they do they'll be glorious.
