As 2012 came to a close, I set a goal for myself for 2013 - to partner with a wedding photographer and be their second shooter/ assistant at a few weddings. I scoured the internet through many Chicago wedding photographers and came across one that stuck out above the rest as a talented, down-to-earth, and professional. I sent her an email and before I even had time to get nervous and second guess my boldness, she responded and said she would be happy to meet for coffee! I am so grateful to have photographed two weddings with Becky Brown Photography already and am excited to say that I will be working with her at many more throughout the year! I have learned so much from working alongside Becky. She is such an inspiration and a wonderful photographer! Make sure to check out her website and facebook page!
Through all the types of portrait and event photography I have experienced so far, there's nothing that compares to spending the day with a blushing bride and her handsome groom on one of the biggest days of their lives. I have quickly fallen in love with wedding photography and I can't wait to continue gaining experience, improving my skills, and sharing the 'special day' with so many wonderful couples. Here are some highlights of the photos I took at Rachel and Brian's wedding on April 13th. Becky's full blog post can also be viewed here.
