Wedding Weekend Extravaganza pt. 1

It's Saturday morning. I'm in Lakeland, Florida. Yesterday I photographed Caryn and Cody's wedding in Albuquerque, NM. Tonight I photograph Mary and Andrew's wedding here in Lakeland. Tomorrow I photograph Charity and Caleb's wedding in San Antonio. I'm crazy... but I'm not the only one!

This morning I got to hang out with my long-time friend Andrew Fear and the videographer, who I've known in absetia, Brian Denton. We went around looking at the church, shoot locations, etc. So, the good part is that Brian is doing video for three weddings, in three different states this weekend, and just happens to be doing Charity and Caleb's wedding with me tomorrow. Weird. Amazing. It's kind of nice to not be the only one!

The other really awesome part about doing this with Brian is that we've been trying to cross paths for quite a while to work on some ways to connect amateur videographers and photographers with important missions projects around the world. It was great to finally get to sit down and talk. Oh, and we might be going to Egypt soon... who knows. My God is pretty big. (Check out Mission Focus by Brian and his team...)

Back to weddings. Caryn and Cody's wedding was fabulous. Short. Sweet. To the point. An gorgeous. The lighting was both atrocious, and the kind of stuff that I absolutely love to work with because it's super dramatic. Let's just say there's a reason I shoot a pro camera and f/2.8 lenses... Here's a couple shots from yesterday.

Thanks to those of you who are praying! I'm rested, travel has gone well, and I'm super excited about another amazing wedding tonight! :-)
