Ever since I discovered wedding photography, I've been interested in it but when I realized that it wasn't just a studio thing but a job where you get to creatively capture a day for two people in love, I have wanted to do it professionally. The problem was that I didn't know who would be willing to take me under their wing and teach me about weddings. I have reached out to quite a few people in the past year but because wedding photographers stay very busy, it's hard to find someone.
Thankfully, Sera Petras is going to be letting me intern with her so I can't wait for that to get started!! But the funny thing was, I had contacted Lauren Rogers back in the summer and I heard from her the other day when I was meeting at Starbucks with Sera, actually. She said she had an opportunity for me to come along and assist her at a wedding in Staunton. I was a little scared at first because I didn't want to let her down but it literally was the perfect first wedding for me to shoot. It was laid back, small, and the bride and groom were so kind. I know I have a lot to learn but Lauren taught me a lot in just one day and I'm so thankful for that! Go check out her photography page!
