The great thing about wedding photography is that weddings, by their nature, are some of the most beautiful, emotional, and important events of our lives. This makes picking the right photographer all that more important. There are a lot of photographers out there, all with different styles. Me? I grew up shooting landscapes. Having to run around and find the best looking shot, because obviously you can't tell the Rocky Mountains to shift a little left, or tell the stick in front of you to move the hell out of the way, or tell the clouds to roll in a little faster or you will miss the sunset colors dancing all over them. I later learned you could sometimes break the stick in the way or yell at the tourists in your photo, but it still isn't like shooting in a studio. When I started shooting weddings, I found that this helped me immensely with not only taking beautiful portraits but being more in tune with the background, colors, and composition of the image. Always chasing light during the last few moments of a sunset prepared me for working under pressure when there is only a few minutes for formals.
