THERE IS AN ADVANTAGE!
Family weddings can be a stressful time. For the bride, the mother of the bride, the groom, friends and family, etc. They seem to be a little extra stressful if you are a member of the family and have a gift or talent. Baking, decorating, DJ, and you guessed it… photography. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE taking pictures. And I’m not even necessarily complaining about THIS wedding at all. It just makes me think that so often if you take not even good pictures but just BETTER pictures than your family… well… you’re the family photographer. Luckily for most of us, we genuinely enjoy every second of it.
This was my cousin’s wedding down in San Diego. Inclusive resort on the water called Paradise Point. Small simple and perfectly planned. No stress to take pictures which allowed me to just be. To be with my family and capture amazing and beautiful candid moments. So use family weddings to your advantage. (disclaimer: there was a professional photographer there)
