When my brother Fred asked me to shoot his wedding, I knew I couldn't do it. Not because I wasn't capable or wanted to, because I did, but because his wedding was probably the most important to me (other than mine, of course) and I wanted to enjoy every minute of it. I know, selfishness on my part! So my job became the recruiter of his wedding photographer.
I knew exactly who I wanted to do his wedding photography, but there was one problem... he didn't live in Austin. Matter of fact, he lived no where *near* Austin. He lives in San Francisco. But I knew his work would speak for itself, and it did.
I flew Jason (www.jwlphotography.com) down to Austin for Fred's wedding for a few days. Since distance was an issue, Jason agreed to do their engagement shoot on the Thursday before the wedding. Not only did he shoot the engagement shoot, he stayed up until 3 AM the following morning editing and posting the pictures on his blog! Now thats dedication!
As amazing and creative as the engagement session was, I had no idea how amazing the wedding pictures would come out. He absolutely knocked it out of the park. He captured Fred & Regina the best anyone has done in my opinion. The pictures are totally them and its a great reflection of how fun the wedding really was. I hope you guys/gals enjoy the pictures as much as I do, because I've looked at them about 20 times, just today!
The only thing I ask is that if you enjoy the pictures as much as I did, leave him a comment and let him know how talented, appreciated, and what a great of a photographer he is.
