For weeks I've been talking about my trip to Seattle (back in March) to shoot Erik & Melissa's wedding and finally the time has come when I can share the images with you! I've had to be patient and wait to publish my perspective of their day because I was working as a second shooter at this wedding and the first photographer (Bryce Covey) had expressed his desire to publish his work first. Fair enough.
Now that's not an impossible task by any means but it felt more daunting when I realised that I was going to have recreate their slideshow & their album design using the re-edited images. The design of these projects isn't the time consuming bit...it's the uploading of all the photos to each of the different creation software programmes. Despite it's beautifulness, I feared my semi-ancient MacBook Pro wouldn't be able to keep up. To top it all off, I was also in the middle of editing another wedding and another engagement session!
Melissa & Erik's wedding is now official re-edited and done! Woohoo — I survived! Now that I'm happier with the images (and proud of the fact I managed to recreate them all last minute — like the crazy person I am) I am seriously excited to share them all with you. I published their blog post & slideshow a couple days ago and it has been such a joy to hear people's comments and responses. Thank you all so much! The images I included in this post were screen shots from my super-speed re-edit so you could see a snippet of what they looked like and how I feel I improved them :D I love before & afters! hehe
I haven't seen my husband in the past couple days so I'll need to go give him some attention now — I think he's been occupying himself with 'How to Train Your Dog' videos on YouTube (yep...he's pretty cool lol).
