And my Coolness? It Just Oozes from Me.

And my Coolness? It Just Oozes from Me.

Personal

I came across this picture JD took at the last wedding we photographed. Seriously? I mean, really. It took every bit of nerve not to toss it in the trash…but every time I see it, I laugh. Hard. I’ve never proclaimed to be cool, but here’s proof that I’d never be even if I tried…

Happy Tuesday!

    LOVE IT, LOL!
    You look like you’re an adoring fan at a rock concert, and the bride is the rock star. Because of course she is! 🙂 It’s a good thing to love your job;) Hey so, I’m convinced you photoshopped a hand in there, though, to cover up your armpit, right? Convenient! Haha, jk.

  30. Michelle -

      3.30.10 - 7:27 pm

  31. Tamara -

    Now my next question, what is the attachment on your flash?

      3.30.10 - 7:34 pm

  32. Shannon -

    Yeah but you ARE cool! And I bet that shot was great – had a tried (oh and I do…) mine would have come out blurry or I would have gotten the tip of her fingers!

  36. Leandra -

    Love it!

      3.30.10 - 7:49 pm

  37. Melissa -

    I love this photo – who cares if you look cool or not? (which by the way I don’t think you look uncool at all). I know when I’m photographing a reception I have to really fight the urge to just start dancing…

      3.30.10 - 7:57 pm

  38. julie gendron -

    i wish you would have posted the shot that you got with arms reached towards the heavens! did it come out?? wait, your jasmine star. hello? OF COURSE it did! 🙂 Love you, and i love that you cropped it right at the armpits, toes and armpits make me squirm. what can i say, i’m from cold NY.. women are lazy around here.. in the boondocks.

      3.30.10 - 8:04 pm

    I love this kind of photographs!!!

      3.30.10 - 9:02 pm

  45. anda -

    well you are still cool to me. and everyone else who reads your blog! i love behind the scenes shots because they give me perspective on how close i can reasonably get to the bride and groom. i’m always afraid to stand in front of the guests — but you don’t look obtrusive at all in this pic and you are RIGHT in there. thanks! now i feel a little more confident to just get in the mix of things.

      3.30.10 - 9:07 pm

  46. Juli L. -

    Ok I think I’m missing something, because I don’t think it’s uncool at all?? I love these kind of shots…you look great and in the moment! 🙂

      3.30.10 - 9:20 pm

  47. Michelle -

    Oh, but you are cool…the coolest maybe!! Love the image that JD caught!

      3.30.10 - 9:29 pm

  51. MelissaFoscardo -

    I love behind-the-scene shots. I don’t think you look uncool at all. To me, you look happy.

  78. MIke Reed -

    OK so here’s something I have struggled with. How to hook up my pocket wizard with a flash on as well. I use the PC port but it’s ALWAYS coming out! How do you attach yours when shooting with a flash? Oh and love the pic, it’s awesome!

      3.31.10 - 2:03 pm

  79. Teddy -

      3.31.10 - 5:11 pm

  84. Angela Liddle -
