Last weekend I had the opportunity to shoot my first wedding.  Jennifer Prine & Andrea McClain of Luv Bug Photo (and the bride & groom) were kind enough to let me tag along on their photo shoot so I could get an idea of what to expect as a photographer.  I was nervous - what I call the "jitters".  Steve & Heather Gabbard decided on a "First Glance" style wedding - where photos are taken beforehand and the Bride & Groom see each other prior to the ceremony. We took pics of the groomsmen/groom first.  I took several shots of Steve with the "jitters".  Then the bride and her bridesmaids came out and my first few shots of Heather are full of "jitters" too.  I didn't feel alone anymore. And I realized their "jitters" go a little deeper than mine as a photog there to help record this very important occasion. No more baby steps, this was the BIG step forward.  But as soon as they saw each other and hugged under the gazebo, the "jitters" melted away.  They took comfort in each others love, as they will for the rest of their lives as husband and wife. Congratulations, Heather & Steve Gabbard!
