Recently I had the pleasure of photographing an anniversary shoot for wedding blogger Mountainside Bride.
Unfortunately, her wedding photographs are ruined from her wedding day. Huh? That’s right, even in this digital age when “anyone can take a picture,” photos can be irreversibly ruined. Being a wedding photographer is more difficult than some might think. The bottom line is that Mountainside Bride is against hiring an amateur to photograph your wedding. Of course I feel bad for her and hate that her crusade against amateur wedding photography was at the cost of her actual wedding day photos. I did a one year anniversary shoot with her and it meant a lot that she said the shoot was healing to her.
“While I can never go back in time and redo my wedding photos, this is the next best thing.” ~Mountainside Bride
She posted some Asheville wedding photos and my Grove Arcade photo on The Bride’s Book blog recently. Neat!
Here is one of my favorite shots from the anniversary shoot at the Arboretum in Asheville, NC.
Brides: Make sure you hire a professional photographer for your wedding. And if you are getting married in Asheville we recommend hiring a local photographer… preferably us :)
