I’ve already told you that Jen and Scott were fun and fashion-forward, but I’ve been itching to show you the full scope of their great wedding at Mayfair Farms. I want to tell this story solely through pictures because it’s a little different for me — with rare exception, as a rule every photo I post to my blog are ones that I took, because I don’t want to show potential couples images from someone who might not be at their wedding. But Sam Hurd traveled up from D.C. to shoot this wedding with Erica Camille and I, and there are a few pictures from both of them in the mix — because they rocked it, because the structure of the day and ceremony meant there were places I simply couldn’t be, and because with five different cameras it’s way too complicated for me to sort them out. I absolutely had a blast running this team, seeing certain moments from multiple angles like Matrix bullet-time.
I’ve always had energy and drive; I think the biggest thing that I’ve developed in nearly 200 weddings is a handy sixth sense for how and when Murphy’s Law will strike and a necessarily unflagging sense of confidence. This job requires you to be a little crazy, and if you’re bringing a bride out to a field like this in heels, you’d better deliver.
