Vanessa’s Bridal Shower

I will be photographing a wedding later this month. The wedding photography opportunity came about as a result of word of month. I photographed my neighbor’s daughter’s wedding late last year. My neighbor’s coworker was looking for a photographer for her daughter’s wedding. My name was mentioned.

In late March, the bride-to-be (Vanessa) came to my house to look at photographs that I had taken of past weddings. Vanessa must have liked my photographs because she asked me to photograph her wedding. Vanessa and Sean’s wedding will be held on July 23.

As I do not know the members of the wedding party or their families, I thought it would be good to become acquainted with some of them before the wedding. I volunteered to take photographs at Vanessa’s bridal shower. The bridal shower took place this past Saturday (July 9). It was held at a picnic pavilion in Crescent Park in my hometown of Warren, Pennsylvania.

Bridal shower guests brought a pot luck dish to share as well as a recipe for that dish. The recipes will be put into a Newlywed Cookbook for Vanessa.

As is traditional at bridal showers, games were played.

I am happy that I attended Vanessa’s bridal shower. I became more acquainted with Vanessa. I met a few members of Vanessa’s family, as well as some of her friends. As a result, I believe I will have a better comfort level when photographing Vanessa’s wedding. I hope, too, that those whom I will photograph at the wedding will feel more comfortable with me!
