Rachel & Eric :: April 26, 2008

I was fortunate to be a shooter and a guest at Rachel and Eric's wedding. Rachel and I have been friends for about 5 years. We were both teachers at Marcia's School of Dance and spent a lot of time together dancing at workshops and on stage.

When Rachel started dating Eric I used them as my very first "sample engagement" session. Imagine Rachel asking Eric after only a few weeks of dating if it was alright to model as an engaged couple. During that session I knew that they were some day going to be married.

When Rachel called to tell me that he finally popped the question and that they were getting married in 4 months I was sooo happy! She asked me about shooting her wedding, and although I was honored that she asked, I told her that I don't do wedding photography for neither close friends or family. For me it is just too difficult to do an amazing job if I have Aunties or old college buddies wanting to talk to me all day.

So I referred a couple of photographer's names to her and Dave Jackson's name rang a bell. I told her I though he was awesome and that she should meet with him right away. One week later she had him booked.

Since then Dave and I have met for coffee and shot together while at WPPI in Las Vegas. He is a really nice guy and doesn't hold back. The great thing for me is that he allowed me to second shoot for him during Rachel and Eric's wedding.

I got some great photos... here are some of the highlights!
