Lori & Kevin's Wedding

My first wedding. Lori called me up about three days before the event and asked if I could shoot her wedding. She loved the pictures I gave to Dr. Wilcox for Christmas of the Oregon Coast, and didn't really know what to do about finding a photographer so last minute.

Fortunately, I didn't have any plans that day so I got my equipment together, ready for anything. Then I called my neighbor Aaron who was a better photographer than I (better in the sense that he had much better equipment. Aaron's work often proved that he was afraid to step out of the box and go for the really artistic shots. He lacked respect for the art.)

Aaron gave me some good pointers. He packed me a bag of lenses and and wished me luck. I was so nervous. But when I got to the wedding, I just relaxed, and I fell into my professional persona.

Most of these pictures are not even that artistic, but they were my first, and I think I did pretty well my first time out.
