Some people think that being a photographer, well...all you have to do is have a cool camera and push a button right? Um, incorrect! I want to take a second and say "THANK YOU" to my assistants and also show you a little of what it takes to be a photographer. To go above and beyond what it takes to get "THE shot!"
I have worked with the Colorado Ice Indoor Football team the last few months and recently, my assistant Kelsey and I, had a chance to get in the rafters...LITERALLY to get the birds eye view from high above the game.
Now, may I just add that I am terrified of heights! I am that person that is at the top of the ferris wheel thinking that I am going to plummet to my death at any second...especially when someone starts shaking it!! GEEZ!! Anyways, Kelsey was the first one up the stairs and even helped talk me up the stairs as I was shaking inside-out! Once up there it was as if we were looking at a chalk board with X's and O's with arrows all over the board. It was the coolest thing once I was looking through my lens and forgetting that we were a million feet in the air!
And this past weekend we were in Omaha and then again in Colorado for another wedding and I just want to share a few behind the scene pictures.
Wide angle shots such as the one you see to the right require having the proper lens as well as the proper angle. This one is one that the bride requested and so that meant getting down and dirty on the concrete to get the picture. (Thank you Tim...and, your shirt didn't get too dirty ;-)
And then on the left, Kelsey is setting up what is usually a potentially difficult ring shot. It takes patience and a skilled hand that isn't shaking to set these up. Kelsey has set up the most difficult of ring shots to get the perfect balance of texture behind the rings as well as keeping it simple to show off the beautiful rings of the bride and groom.
So, let me just add one thing...
We put a lot of time and effort into what we do and work hard to get the images that you want. It doesn't matter if we have to lay on the ground, climb on a chair or almost get ran over by an entire wedding party (totally another blog ;-), that we will do what we can to capture your wedding day to the best of our ability and have fun while doing what we love!
Thank you Kelsey and Tim!! You guys are amazing and never cease to amaze me with your talents, ideas and abilities! I am excited that you are part of my team! Go three Amigos ;-)
