Bride, groom, photographer and.... i'll come help!!!!!

When you see a photographer, bride and groom head off away from the wedding reception or somewhere during the day you should totally follow and help them out by asking them questions and offering suggestions and also giving constructive criticism during this and maybe giving social media updates. Kidding, don't do this!

Drove 17 hours for 2.38 minutes

So when an eclipse happens you don't simply stay home, you go and meet it where it's at it's best. I drove way too long to see something way too short and it was very worth it. Did I mention the waffle house?

It's not a Trump hat!

It's not a Trump hat!

So if you haven't seen my Facebook yet then you don't know the yuuuge news. I have a new hat, a red hat, like i've always worn, except.. it has white lettering. Make Mike great again, he's always been great. So the problem with the new hat is Donald Trump also wears a red hat. I guess the big difference will be my ability to write and speak full sentences without using small words and big small hand movements. Okay, enough writing, go and read.

What a photographer's day is like.

What a photographer's day is like.

So I thought this may be interesting to some of you out there. Being a photographer is awesome but most of it is the hustle. You have to work your butt off and throw stuff at the wall and see what sticks. On top of that is communicating with anyone who you may come across on social media, phone, e-mail, text message or smoke signals. It's being proactive and taking risks at times and other times playing it safe and doing things by the book and also knowing the difference of when to do which.  A typical day in most full time photographers lives means being flexible and nimble. Here's what a typical day looks like for me, give or take a few details.

Hoodie and winter cap.

Hoodie and winter cap.

Meetings should be casual. Imagine if you went into a bank to discuss a mortgage which is a very serious matter. If the person across from you was wearing similar clothes to you and was able to sit there and walk you through the process of a mortgage wouldn't you feel a bit more confident and relaxed? That's what I think at least. When I meet a bride and groom I want them to be relaxed and honest with me so that I can give them the best price possible and also get to know them a little bit quicker because I'm going to be spending an entire day with them later in the year.

Want to become a better photographer, shoot weddings. 

This is a marathon, a crucible of photography. Locations, settings, light, people, equipment, you are the one making all these mini decisions and changing the outcome of your photos. The more you shoot these, the better you'll get.  Sure it can be stressful, but once that's gone it's nothing but fun.
