Emily and Ben Wedding

Loved working with these two again! I blogged about the engagement session I did with these two a while back right here. They're such sweet and genuine people, and I was glad to be there for the big day.

The wedding and reception were both at St. John's Episcopal, a beautiful church. There is a lovely courtyard there, which was the site of one my worst mishaps as a professional photographer, but more about that in a bit.

Ben and Emily decided to do a first look before the ceremony in the courtyard. It's beautiful, but the slate tiles there are VERY slippery when wet.

I'm pretty good at stealth-scrambling to get angles during first looks. This time, though, I busted in a spectacular fashion, right when Ben turned around. I felt horrible! Kept right on shooting, and luckily Ben and Emily were mostly too interested in each other to notice.

Once the moment was over, I looked down to see my pants. I was a mess.

Ouch. 

But I carried on!
