Destination Wedding – Leslie-Ann & Gary – North Carolina, USA.

October 13, 2010

Shooting Leslie-Ann and Gary’s wedding wasn’t nearly as difficult as deciding to shoot their wedding. It’s my first time involved in a full wedding, and first time visiting the United States to add. I was caving under the pressure and wrote them a letter to decline. This was Gary’s response:

“…by emphasizing that Leslie-Ann and I care a lot about our wedding photos, we are not at all worried about your “performance.”  Loving photography and having ridiculously high standards for a photographer are two different things.  We love photography.  But we do not have unreasonable expectations. As a challenge for a photographer, it is nothing more than a small party.  It’s a practice round for your wedding portfolio, and you have a rare opportunity to have free reign on a wedding armed with digital and film Nikon (again: “Nikon, right?”) gear, with a couple of people (me and LA) who are not tightly-wound douchebags who will get all bent out of shape if their photos are not exactly perfect.  We will love whatever you do.  I promise.”

And to think I almost didn’t want to go.

Harvard no shashin iine!!
I don’t find your photos “lonely” at all(I am not just talking about the wedding photos).
Every object and moment in the photos are a part of life.

Thank you Mari-san. 😀

Crap. Now I have to get married so you can shoot my hypothetical wedding. Annoyingly, that will be like 4 years away, and there’s no way I can afford you then! love love love love.
