On May 6th I photographed a wedding for my brother-in-law's cousin, Angie. It was only my 2nd time photographing a wedding and I was extremely nervous. I also photographed the bridal shower, the wedding rehearsal, and I followed the bride the entire day of the wedding. It was a lot of fun and a lot of work. I took over 1400 photos and it took me several days to sort through and edit them. I'm always of the mindset that I'd rather take too many shots of the same pose than risk taking only one or two shots of a pose and someone blinks or moves and the shot is ruined. All in all I think the photos turned out pretty good and the bride and her mother were pleased, so that's the most important thing.
Usually, after I take photos, I upload them to my laptop and then I back them up to a 1.5TB external hard drive. I especially want to make sure that the portraits and wedding photos I do for people are protected. I noticed that the hard drive on my laptop was almost completely full, so I decided that I would backup my external hard drive online with Carbonite so that I could delete most of the photos off my laptop. My external hard drive is hooked up to an older desktop and networked wirelessly to my laptop. After I paid for and downloaded the Carbonite software to my desktop, I quickly found out that you can't backup an external hard drive with Carbonite. After a stressful call to tech support, this fact was confirmed. So, after some discussion with my husband, I ended up buying a new 1.5TB desktop computer. Now I can safely upload the photos onto the desktop and back them up on the Carbonite online software. So, buyer beware...you can't back up an external hard drive with Carbonite.
These are the wedding photos of Angie and Joel.

This past weekend I photographed my cousin, Nicole's wedding. After I finish editing those photos, I'll put up a few shots of those as well.
