Rob and Leah’s Wedding

Yesterday I shot my last wedding of the 2010 season and perhaps the last one for at least a year.  I spent Thanksgiving and “Black Friday” with my family in Oklahoma and then flew back early Saturday morning out of OKC.  I drove out to the lovely quiet town of Weston, Missouri.  I met up with Rob and Leah and we walked around town for about an hour to get some fun shots before the wedding.  I was not booked for the entire evening so there were no reception shots so I had to try and get some great shots early.  Weston provided some beautiful spots all within a few hundred yards.  Rob and Leah were a blast to work with and made my job a lot easier!  Check out their entire wedding album HERE.  This is my 3rd 24-Hour photo turnaround this past year.  I have to be one of the fastest turnaround guys in the business.  I have turned down nearly 20 inquiries to shoot weddings this next year.  I’m starting into Chiropractic practice and will need to focus my attention on that first and foremost.  I do plan to try and do a few weddings a year as a chiropractor but I’ll be much more selective of what I shoot.  It has been one heck of a learning experience these last two years learning to shoot weddings.  I’ve learned 95% of everything by trial and error.  My personal wedding photographer got me started, but he lives too far to help me on a continuous basis.  I think I get a little better each time and if I had a trained assistant, I think I could really do some great work!  Who knows what the future holds.  I’ll be focusing on HDSLR video for a while.  I’ll be using my Canon 5D Mark II to film video.  This is much harder than photography and will be essential in promoting our Chiropractic office.  I’m getting pretty close on our 4-year anniversary video, so look back for that within two weeks.  Our anniversary is on December 16th.  It’s absolutely amazing to me that four years have already flown by!  I wanted to once again thank all of the couples who have let me photograph their special days.  It was a pleasure to do so and I will surely miss shooting weddings this next year.  -Barnezy-
