I wanted to take a departure from my normal technical podcast today and talk about a wedding I just photographed and some of my thoughts behind it. This is the first time I’ve done this, but I had such a strong reaction to this wedding and want to learn from this experience by discussing my thoughts and emotions. After all, this is what we’re paid to do, our job is to experience and to learn and to apply that knowledge and wisdom to our photography. So, I thought I would share this exercise with you and I encourage you to try it as well.
Manuel and Samirah were married on the edge of the Grand Canyon, but it was not just their wedding location that made it an interesting wedding. There were so many details that made this wedding extra special. I wanted to talk about them and about the way this wedding felt. Samirah chose to make the wedding simple, but full of meaningful events and ceremony. I was truly touched.
