Last Saturday, I had the pleasure of working with Meg & Charles Baisden, of Meg Baisden Photography, to shoot a wedding over in Watercolor. They are a dynamic husband and wife team that truly capture the finest weddings. Not only do I have a tremendous amount of respect for their work (they shot mine and my wife’s wedding), but I also value their friendship…they’re just good people! They were terribly gracious with their time and knowledge, not only in the intricacies of photography, but life in the “business” as well. I can’t even place a value on my being able to work with them…it was a real treat and I hope to be able to do it again soon!
Anyone who knows me also knows that I’m a real emotional sap (yes, I admit that I’ve cried at “chick flicks”. I mean, what can I say…it’s healthy, right?). So, when I get to be included so intimately in a couple’s union, it’s really special. And when I see another man and woman get so emotional, it’s hard not to share in their emotions…I don’t know how people can ever become callous to that. Anyway, meet Jill and Ben. Seriously, could I have shot a better looking couple??? They were so welcoming, excited, and eager to soak in their day. It was really beautiful. Enjoy some shots from their amazing day.
I have to post a couple of these outtakes too because they’re pretty cool. So, Meg has traditionally been the creative genius behind Meg Baisden Photography and Charles, for the most part, has brought the business savvy. Don’t let those descriptions fool you, however, as Charles is an accomplished photographer, himself. However, like most marriages, when your wife tells you to do something…you listen. Check out Charles reflecting light for Meg to get the right shot. And when he wasn’t reflecting, that reflector became a fan to keep the families cool. Also, check out the behind the scenes pampering (portable fan) to ensure that the bride stayed nice and comfortable during formal shots!
