Nothing like a southern wedding. No, I’m not talking about shotgun weddings. Our daughter met the man of her dreams a few years ago, and they got married recently. It was hectic, to say the least, planning the wedding. Like most of the weddings in our area, it was an outdoor wedding with an outdoor reception. Well, we had some tents set up for dinner but no reception hall was rented. You have the weather and everything else to worry about with weddings like this. We used Doerman Photography to not have to worry about the pictures.
Our daughter actually left picking the photographer to me, her dad. Of all people, she figured I would have the best shot of picking a really good wedding photographer. That is because I am also a photographer. Why didn’t I photograph her wedding? Well, I was in it for one, and I would not touch wedding photography with the proverbial ten foot pole! I will stick to my landscapes, nature and still like photography thank you. Weddings have one thing in common. That is, a nervous bride and a cranky mom. And in most weddings, a cranky mother-in-law too. People get nervous before a wedding. They worry about the bride’s big day being ruined by some unforeseen event or one of the professionals hired to make it great goofing up.
We had our glitches and outright failures on the wedding day. Nothing major though, and nothing was amiss with the photography. That is the one thing that came out even better than I had imagined it would. You can really tell when you have a professional wedding photographer shooting an outdoor wedding. They come with the right equipment, and they know how to make that equipment work to get the important shots. The photos turned out great. Everything from bright sunlight to the evening candlelight photos were great.
