We're all thinking it. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Posted on

1. Okay. Wedding day again. Give me alllllllll of the coffee.

2. I'm so nervous I feel like I have the stomach flu. Actually I'm pretty sure I have the stomach flu.

3. Oh wait.. just the nervous poos. Probably shouldn't have had that third cup of coffee this morning.

4. Also whyyyyyy did I spend an extra 2 minutes on my hair earlier?! COME ON STOPLIGHT DON'T YOU KNOW YOU'RE MAKING ME LOOK UNPROFESSIONALLY LATE??

5. Okay. Arrived. Holy crap this place is a DREEAAAMMM!!!!

6. Ohhh behind those trees would be PERFECT for bride and groom portraits.

7. NO WAIT. DAT OVERLOOK THO. Getting some killer bridals there later.

8. I hope I didn't forget anything. I'm pretty sure I forgot something really important.

9. Okay focus.. you're already late.

10. Now to attempt to feel comfortable hanging out in a room full of girls who've been best friends for their entire lives and have also had quite a few shots before 10am.

11. Omg these girls are so stunning. Why did I wear this I look like total crap.

12. Okay just grab the rings and invitation. Paper can't judge you.

13. Omg I honestly forgot how to work a camera.

14. Naw, I've totally good this.

15. This ring is so freaking pretty. Like 2 carats FO SHO.

16. Is it against the rules to try it on? Probably? Oh well.

17. OKAY FOCUS (I just laughed inside at my own pun. I'm the coolest).

18. Now, let me just casually get some photos of the dudes drinking in their boxers. Not awkward at all.

19. Actually yes. So freaking awkward. Moving on.

20. I seriously can't get over how awesome this venue is.

21. Can I get married here?

22. We are so freaking behind schedule. But be cool. Be cool.

23. First look time. Thank goodness I remembered to pack tissues.

24. This groom was a drunken mess five minutes ago. He looks sooooo debonair right now. How?!

25. OMG THE TEARRRSSSSS.

26. How am I expected to keep my composure when the groom is crying when reacting to seeing his bride for the first time?!

27. Also holy crap. Why do guests have to arrive a million hours before the ceremony. You're all not THAT close with the couple. Get over yourselves.

28. Sooooo thirsty. But also have to pee.

29. Everyone's lined up for the ceremony and now I'm pretty sure I have the stomach flu again.

30. Although maybe it's just my bladder about to explode.

31. Don't mind me, guests. Just standing up in the front of the aisle by myself.

32. No really though, you all don't HAVE to stare at me...

33. I wonder what would happen if I passed out right now.

34. Yeahhhhh I probably shouldn't pass out right now.

35. Omg these flowers girls are so cute. I could TOTALLY see myself having a kid.

36. NOPE NOPE NOT IF THEY'RE GONNA SCREAM LIKE THAT AND RUIN MY WEDDING DAY

37. Okay, camera. It's all led up to this. Don't fail me now.

38. Omg PLEASE don't fail me now.

39. Ahhhhh dad's crying!!!!!

40. And she's soooooo pretty I hate her.

41. PLEASE GOD LET ONE OF THESE BE IN FOCUS

42. Now the groom is crying!!!!

43. It's fine. Be cool. Just focus and hide your tears behind your camera.

44. Whew. Didn't pass out. But I still have to pee like a freaking waterfall right now.

45. I can't believe the girl in the second row wore WHITE to this wedding. Like in what world is that acceptable?!

46. How many shots of the same thing during the ceremony am I supposed to take again?

47. Ohhh these vows are so sweet.

48. dontmissthekissdontmissthekissdontmissthekiss

49. "You may now kiss the br..."

50. DUDE STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE AISLE WITH YOUR iPAD CAMERA.. I PROMISE YOU I WILL WREAK HAVOC ON YOUR FUTURE CHILDREN'S LIVES FOR ALL OF ETERNITY IF YOU DON'T MOVE OUT OF MY WAY RIGHT NOW

51. Oh crap I forgot about family photos.

52. How many people are in this family??!!! 140? Don't they know I have to pee still?!

53. These are important though. Suck it up.

54. Oh thank goodness. A porta potty. Fabulous.

55. SUNSET BRIDE AND GROOM PORTRAITS. MY FAVEEEEE.

56. Alright.. we're running behind so I only have 10 minutes to create epic couples photo.

57. No really. These are the ONLY good photos of the two of them from their wedding day they'll have for the REST OF THEIR LIVES. No pressure.

58. Oh man but this light though.

59. Dude I am killing it. SO in the zone right now.

60. I hope my second shooter will remind me what time we have to be done by because I'll stay out here for another hour and not even realize it.

61. Really? It's already been ten minutes? We can do five more. The DJ won't be THAT mad. The last one was only mildly upset at me for going over.

62. Oh man. They are KILLING IT. I cannot wait to edit these.

63. Okay. Probably don't want to further piss off the DJ/all the guests.

64. Man, I hate using flash. Totally just boosting my ISO for this.

65. Really? Your grand entrance song is by Cyndi Lauper? The song you're using to introduce yourself as a couple to the world is by Cyndi freaking Lauper???

66. I really hope they have a spot for me at one of these tables for dinner. I just realized I haven't eaten anything for 10 hours and could probably demolish this entire buffet table right now. With zero shame.

67. YESSSSSS. TABLE 3!!!!

68. Oh of course I'll take your family photos after I just sat down to eat for 2 minutes. I'm not hungry at all right now.

69. Dancing time!!!! I'll just grab a slice of cake later. I'll be fine.

70. It's so weird being the only sober one at a wedding. I kind of love it though.

71. I literally cannot feel my feet right now. I wouldn't be surprised if I never walked again.

72. Backing up all my cards before I leave. Pleaseeeee don't get in a car crash with someone on the way home.

73. FINALLY DONE. I'm sooooooooooo tired omg but I can't wait to edit all these photos.

74. I freaking love my job.
