As a wedding photographer you need to be in 10 places at once. There is just so much going on around you, and you can't miss any of it...so having a good team is key. Especially on a wedding like this one where you are crunched for time. You have to be at the hair salon, the grooms house, the ceremony site, and the hotel all at once. It doesn't matter how close together these locations might be...you're not a marathon runner...you're a photographer...and you can't do everything. So then you have to make a choice. You can miss out on some great shots...or you can bring a team of people you trust to help you. I like teams. I enjoy a good team. Teams make for good photography.
Dressed and ready, the bride and her girls headed to the ceremony site for one of the most beautiful first looks I've ever witness. Monica had tears in her eyes just walking up the stairs. They are so in love...and they've waited 8 years for this moment.
