Fayetteville, NC 2008
Man, I knew nothing of what I was doing… All I knew was that some friends I knew were getting married and I wanted to be there to shoot it.
They were getting married on May 27th, 2008. Memorial Day! A special day for two soldiers to unit and pledge their love to one another. I met the couple with their two witnesses at the Fayetteville Court House in North Carolina and watched them share their vows in front of the magistrate. We then headed to a park nearby called Field of Honor which at the time of May, displays the American Flag for about a month.
At that time, I knew nothing about the camera. I didn’t know about setting the ISO, f-stops and exposure. I didn’t know about reflectors, using fill flash, not shooting in direct sunlight and getting that focused shot. I had a Fuji FinePix S5700 which was probably set to AUTO and I didn’t shoot the photos in RAW! But looking at the photos, I know even now, that I was in love with taking wedding photos.
