getting ready

I think I've gone into "blogging withdrawls!" I've definitely missed all you cyber-peeps! I was in NE over the weekend at a dear friend's wedding. She asked me to take her getting ready photos and assist the official photographer, so I got a crash course in wedding photography. It was such a learning experience for me, and I actually really enjoyed it! I have tons and tons of photos to process now. I finally saved up enough to purchase an external flash, and it arrived just in time, the day before I flew out to the wedding. I figured it out enough to use it, but I can tell there is going to be a learning curve on it for sure. So for now, here are some getting ready photos.

It looks like she's praying here, but really she's just holding the pins for the hairdresser!

Angie's friend did professional make-up for her, this was serious business! I've honestly never seen anything like it. I didn't know you could put moisturizer on with a brush!

Scott and Angie didn't see each other before the ceremony, but exchanged letters instead. Here, Angie is reading the letter Scott wrote to her (for her eyes only.) We're all dying to know what it said. Angie is getting very emotional in the meantime, and we're all being supportive (not nosey) friends.
