I just sat down in my office for the first time today and it is currently 2:57pm. I have been running around all day helping people get ready for a trip they are going on. Their laptop had to be set up in a way that would allow them to access another PC to help a new employee if need be.
This weekend my wife and I went to Buffalo, NY as photographers for a wedding. It was a fun, fast, and busy weekend. We arrived in Buffalo at 10am and checked into our motel. From there we proceeded to check out the spots that we would be at during the day. This gave us a decent idea of what we would be doing that day.
My wife dropped me off at the bride and groom’s apartment, to take pictures of the guys getting ready. Meanwhile my wife met the girls at their hotel to do the same. This was the first time that I had ever taken pictures like this. I like more of the nature and landscape photos. I have never really captured people before. I welcomed the chance to do so and help my wife in the process. The groomsmen were a bit difficult and the lighting in a small apartment isn’t great but I had to work with what I had. I had them gather on a small balcony and had much better lighting out there. In the end I got many good and not so good shots. The groom was great to work with all day.
Now was the time that we would all meet at a local park. The bride and groom were going to do a first look. The groom was standing at the top of a stone stairwell facing away from the stairs. The bride slowly walked to him and stopped a few steps away. He turned around and saw his bride for the first time, in her beautiful wedding dress. The typical hugs and kisses followed. Soon after the rest of the bridal party showed up in a party bus. We took individual head shots of each one of them as well as a few group photos.
From there we went to the venue. The ceremony was on a rooftop overlooking the water. It was a great day, weather wise, for a wedding. The ceremony was short but sweet, and we went downstairs for the reception. We gathered the bride and groom’s families and took photos of them outside, before anything officially started. Once in the hall where the reception was being held. They cut the cake in the middle of the room and proceeded with the first dance. From there it was your typical wedding reception. They danced, ate, threw the garter/bouquet, drank, and danced some more. My wife and I were there until 9pm. By the end of our time there we were exhausted. We packed up and headed back to the motel. It took us a while to get back since her GPS was acting up and we didn’t know our way around Buffalo. We did it! It was done for now. We took the pictures, all that was needed now was to have my wife edit them and get them out.
She found out we had close to 3000 pictures of the whole day. She is going to narrow it down to a good 300 that she will edit and send out. This is by far her biggest project, but she does what she loves and loves what she does. So far from what I’ve seen they are great. Of course there is the occasional blurry, or unusable photo, but that’s why you take 3000 haha. We got home the next day around 1pm and just relaxed the weekend away.
I can say that I did start playing CS:GO again and I kinda suck after not playing for a few months. I quickly got the hang of it again, but still can’t get over the new sound changes to the guns. Gah I hate them. I asked my buddy what he thought was the issue with the domain routing of my Minecraft server and he didn’t really have an answer. He also has never run one this way. He told me that he would just run a web server. Since I am not familiar with that I’m not sure what to do. This is all that I can think of for now. I’ll have a sneak peek photo from the wedding at the bottom. Please feel free to like and follow my wife’s photography Instagram @jordyntrisketphotography .
Have a great Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow! 😀 😀
