It’s amazing what can happen from one little tweet. Early last summer I tweeted some locations that were on my “places to shoot a wedding” bucket list . . . Prague, Ireland, India, Hawaii, and a few others, one of which was the Outer Banks. I’ve had a minor obsession with the place for a long time now and had never been. My friend Gabe saw my tweet and asked if I wanted to join him to shoot a wedding in the Outer Banks. Let.Me.Get.This.Straight. You are asking me to come shoot a wedding with a mega talented photographer, who shoots film, in the Outer Banks!? Obviously I went. And I knew it would be awesome.
What I didn’t realize was that it would turn my world on it’s side. Who knew shooting film would change the way I feel about photography so much. Honestly, I wanted to do it, just to see if I could. But every once in a while, you have that feeling in your gut when you know something is just right, and that can’t be ignored. Film feels right. I cried when Gabe sent me my scans. I was so terrified that none of them would come out, that I would embarrass myself in front of someone I have a lot of respect for. Even worse, that I would let myself down. But I loved them oh so much. Since then I’ve been shooting more and more film at each wedding and session. I cannot wait to share them.
For now, enjoy this gorgeous wedding in Manteo (pronounced Manny-yo) that I had the pleasure to assist Gabe Aceves on. Thank you Gabe and Sarah from the bottom of my heart. I had such a great time with you both.
