The challenge really was how to be my authentic self while shooting along side two great photographers – Paopao Sanchez and Jessie Villegas (Capturing Smiles Photography). It was tricky where to place myself. I just can’t be where they were. How can I be different?
I’m quiet when I shoot. I throw a few instructions and encouragement here and there. I want authentic moments. I had to remind myself over and over again that it was not a real wedding, but rather an editorial session for Merry To Marry. I think I had several pauses (a bit lost I must admit). I had to pull myself together to continue.
It was a fun filled afternoon. I was with happy and very driven people.
