The Very First One

Last Friday I had the opportunity to second-shoot with a local photographer at a wedding in Miami Beach. First and foremost I want to thank Becca of Becca Borge Photography . Words can not express how grateful I am of her for allowing me to have that experience and giving me the chance to learn! Not many professionals give back the way she did for me, and I will forever be grateful to have had that opportunity. If you would like to see her pictures from this wedding and others, please click here.

The wedding was held at The Palms Hotel & Spa in Miami Beach. It was a small wedding, about 50 guests. The bride and groom are both musician and composed+recorded their own music for the ceremony. How cool is that!?

This was my very first time shooting a wedding. I was nervous. It felt like the first day at a new school and you don’t really know what to do or what to expect. I wasn’t getting paid and was assured there was no pressure to produce anything, so there was no reason to be nervous, but I was! Becca was very patient with me. She allowed me to ask questions throughout the day and was happy to answer them.  I had a lot, and I mean A LOT of bad photos! But I had more turn out than I had expected.  I was satisfied with the results considering I had not photographed an event like this before. I only have one lens (50mm), too, that I shot this event with.  Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Becca Borge - Love them! You did so great! Glad to have you come along with me 🙂
