Eric Balint and I have known each other for almost 20 years. He and I grew up on the same street in Marietta, GA. When I heard he and Suzanne were getting hitched, I jumped at the chance to shoot their wedding. I think they did a fun thing by just asking a couple of friends to shoot the wedding. That way it saved them some cash while also having a set of photographers who already knew the MVPs of the wedding party. Sometimes that inside knowledge can help a photo guy like myself.
I had just shot my sister's engagement pictures before their wedding and wish I had prepared a little more for Suzanne's Bridal portraits. Because Suzanne and Eric are such sweet laid back people, they didn't ask much of me nor want me to work too hard on their wedding day. In retrospect, I wish I had shown up 3 hours earlier, brought every bit of my equipment, and put much more work into bridal portraits because Suzanne looked so beautiful! But then again, I wasn't about to get in the way of their plans because I know even the most laid back weddings are still very busy. Plus, I think I shoot better with a camera in one hand and a beer in the other. Kidding!
Of course she made the album. :)
