To say that shooting a wedding at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia is a photographer’s dream is not an understatement; it’s just wrong. It would have been a dream if we had had all the time in the world to spend photographing Blair and Eric and their wedding party. Trying to capture such a beautiful couple in such a beautiful setting with so little time is just not fair. It’s torture! I want my cake and want to eat it, too!
The night before the wedding I had my typical wedding night jitters, but Kathy, of Kathy Blanchard Photography, and I came up with a master plan after scouting the place out, which was a relief. I think that feeling of anxiety is what I love and hate most about being a wedding photographer. The fact that every wedding is different and unpredictable is thrilling, and I would be bored to tears if every wedding were exactly the same and went exactly as planned, but at the same time, the “not knowing” is just so nerve wracking! You just have to give every second of wedding day 110% of your best effort. Then the next day you feel great because you know you gave it your all and you can stop losing sleep over it.
Blair and Eric’s wedding was such a fabulous event and experience. The fact that they didn’t take themselves or their wedding too seriously in such a formal setting gave their wedding even more flair. (As if adding flair to the Greenbrier is even possible!) Thanks so much to Blair & Eric for choosing me to capture it, and thanks to Kathy for getting me through it, and creating so many of these beautiful images!
