I know I’ve said it before, but I can’t expect to go to a wedding and do a great job if I don’t practice before! Photography isn’t just a weekend job. If I only picked up a camera when I was working how on earth would I learn? And when would I get to try new techniques? Sometimes I practice on inanimate objects… sometimes my kittens… sometimes I beg my friends to let me practice on them… sometimes I force Ryan to let me use him and other times I go to shoots put together just for that. Two weeks ago I went to a shoot to practice. It’s not quite the same as a wedding (you have to share the couple with a dozen other photographers) but it is still a chance to practice, try new things, and learn. It was a ton of fun. Here are some of the photos I got that day. It was at Stone Tower Winery up in Leesburg, VA and if you are looking for a venue you should really look at them! They are just beautiful!
