Wedding whoas

Meet my friend Ed.eddie ps colorizedEd is getting married. Yay, Ed!!

He is marrying this stunning woman.n1387773513_30015115_3481 Her name is Meagan.

As much as I love and adore Ed and Meagan, Ed and Meagan are crazy.n1387773513_30009079_8691 Ed and Meagan want me to be their wedding photographer!!!

I told them no.

I told them I’ve never done a wedding before.

I told them they should really hire a professional to capture all of those once-in-a-lifetime moments.

Ed and Meagan, on top of being crazy, must also be deaf because Ed and Meagan are still insisting I shoot their wedding.

I have seen numerous samples of your work. You certainly can do it. You have got the eye to capture it just right. I say go for it!

Debbie said...

That photo of her is incredible. You can do it!

Debbie, although I appreciate your encouragement (and everyone else's too), I have to be honest - I did not take that picture of Meagan...I shamefully (and without her consent, I might add) stole it from her Facebook page!

Stacey said...

You take some of the best pictures I've ever seen! Do it woman! How amazing...and what a compliment! Congrats on such a huge one!!!!

Melinda! If there is anyone in the whole wide world who can shoot a great wedding it is you. You take wonderful pictures. You capture magical moments. And you can edit like nobody's business. I want you to come be my wedding photographer. Oh wait. I am already married. And I hate pictures of myself. I am rescinding my offer : ) I would love to be your second shooter though : ) If your friend is crazy and fun then I know I would LOVE him :) And her too, of course!

Hey Melinda! How awesome! I just had to share with you a blog that I happen to think you will love!

http://www.merakohblog.com/

Me Ra is awesome and lives here in my area. I had the pleasure of teaching her daughter how to swim when I worked at the YMCA. Anyway, if you scroll down her blog there is a entry from July 13 about how her business got started. In the post is a link to a pod cast, it is pretty long BUT I think you will love to hear it. She talks about her FIRST WEDDING shoot and how awful it was, but wait! this is a GOOD story! And I think you could benifit from it before you shoot Ed's wedding! Anyway, she and her husband are now an awesome team and shoot high end weddings ALL OVER THE WORLD! She is just amazing and I really hope to log into to follow her blog and see what she does!

Good luck! I know you will do great!

Melinda, you are crazy, you should totally do it! You have to start somewhere and it's best to start with a crazy couple who won't listen to reason! I started with Ben and Dara and they're still my friends 5 years later! Take the leap!

Jenny said...

Daniele said...

You should definitely do it! Your pictures are always so great and they want you to do it because they trust you. You would do such a great job!
