My Very First Wedding Session

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.
