Mr. and Mrs. McKeown

First off, congratulations to Ryan and Amanda, or rather, Mr. and Mrs. Mckeown on their fabulous wedding day last Friday, and a big thank you to them both for giving me the opportunity to photograph their celebration.

I have a newfound respect for wedding photographers (even moreso than before). Event shooting is difficult because there are so many variables. Timing is absolutely key. So is planning ahead, scouting locations, understanding where the light will be during your shoot, and being able to work on the fly - there are no second chances or opportunities to reshoot what you missed. This was only my second wedding shoot as the lead (and in this case, sole) photographer, and it was STRESSFUL. I feel like I learnt a lot, and will definitely improve on my next one. Again, big thanks to Amanda and Ryan for having me as part of their day, and wishing you two all the best in a happy and lifelong marriage.
