The Meerkat

This ladies and gentlemen is Michelle, she is getting married to Rob tomorrow and guess what- I am their official photographer!!! *hyperventilation!* yep, quite some months ago now, Michelle asked me repeatedly about when I am going to get into wedding photography. Now this has always been my ambition, but I guess it has been a case of it just not happening yet. Somehow, at our original "Lets have a chat then" meeting, my opening gambit of "Well, I haven't done a wedding before" was met immediately with "Yeah, that doesn't put us off". I didn't have a Plan B and so, here we are doing this thing!


I would be totally lying to say I am cool, calm and collected.....but I am sort of glad I am not- because I really want to do them a great job. Surprisingly, its really easy to get caught into looking at the zillions of wedding blogs and photographs and begin planning a 'copycat' style. I have had to step away from that and really instill that they chose me because of my style. That doesn't mean change it.


This was Michelle's third and final Hen -Party last Friday, pretty much SOOC other than a bit of colour balance (I didn't use flash). Michelle has the best teeth ever!


Wish me luck Flickr! XX
