“Melissa, would you be interested in photographing a wedding?” I remember the question like it was yesterday. Joe, a friend of mine, asked me if I would be interested in photographing his nephew’s wedding. I remember sitting there in shock for the most part. “Me? A wedding? What?! I just photograph animals at the zoo and my kid…not weddings!” After playing with the idea of it – I knew I couldn’t become a professional photographer unless I started somewhere, so I agreed to it. My very first wedding ever booked was Daniel & Taylor’s beautiful wedding. I knew it was the perfect match when I got to meet Taylor for the first time. We clicked right of the get go!
The wedding, group shots, and reception were all so easy to shoot because I felt like I was already part of the family. Everybody welcomed myself and Chris in as if we were their own.
Thank you so much to the Kanten’s and the Wygal’s for allowing me into their lives for the day to capture this amazing day. Enjoy these photos!
