"Do You Ever Get Nervous When You Show Up To A Wedding?"
Every Damn Time!
I've been shooting for years. I've had over a hundred Indianapolis couples in front of my camera. I've been given awards for my wedding photography and I've had brides tell all of their friends that my photos are so good they need to hire me to shoot their weddings. So why in the hell would I get nervous before I show up to shoot a wedding? It's just like when you were in 6th grade and your favorite teacher would ask the class a question and even though you KNEW the answer you were still scared to raise your hand. Your brain would say "But what if you're wrong? You will look so dumb in front of your friends! They're all going to laugh at you!" My brain does the same thing before a wedding. "But what if they hate your photos? You're going to look so dumb in front of your brides! They're all going to laugh at you!" That's when 6th grade Raymond pops in and tells your brain "Well look at me now! I'm here, I made it out alive, and I damnit you're not going to stop me from raising my hand this time! Go out there Raymond! You go out there and you crush it! Show your couples why you're one of the best! Show them why you've earned your awards!" I then high five the pudgy 6th grade Raymond and I go in there with adrenaline pumping and I kill it!
...That got deep for a second didn't it?
