About 3 years ago, I retired from wedding photography and began focusing on Flaunt Your Site my web development company for other photographers. I was so focused on creating websites for other photographers I had totally forgot how much I missed the excitement, thrill and pure love I have for shooting weddings.
I had been talking with Andrea about potentially doing a website with her since she was intensifying her own photography business. We hit it off right away, a couple 2-3 hour conversations talking about the excitement of running and promoting a business and photography in general.
At the beginning of the year, she called me and told me that she had bad news, she wasn’t going to do a website. But… she was getting married! It was great news. And of course the inevitable question of who was going to shoot it came up, and she said that I was going to! And apparently I had no say in the matter.
Jump to May, and I find myself in Beverly Hills at the Paley Center for Media designed by Richard Meier (which is awesome since I studied Architecture in college), photographing my first wedding on film. Photographing a wedding for the first time in 3 years. And photographing one of the sweetest women in the world, and her new husband Mark. It was one of the most memorable days of my life.
Oh and dinner at the Palm…
