RANDOM WEDDING IMAGES

Early New Years resolution – blog weddings on a regular basis.  I’m not sure why it seems to be such an issue (ha), but I’ll work on it.  One possibility behind the psychology of not blogging weddings is in the details.  Details… if you visit the wedding blogs out there, they are so heavily detail oriented and I’m just not.  I’m people oriented.  I shoot the details while I am at a wedding, however; I focus on the people and the moments they share together.  Whether it is the session alone with the bride and groom, the mother/son dance, or even the engagement session… I photograph people.  It’s what I love.

Here’s my typical blog bomb of images.  You’re welcome, and I’m sorry 🙂

so much more after the jump…

  • Tweets that mention I do shoot weddings, I’m just terrible at blogging them | Jay Eads Photography -- Topsy.com - […] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Gareth Robins, Eric Krebs, Laura Bradbury, jay eads, jay eads and others. jay eads said: a big fat wedding blog… an apology of sorts, i suppose 🙂 http://jayeads.com/?p=948 (oops, re-post due errors. yay) […]

  • Stephen Jackson - When I’m running out of inspiration, I turn to music and blogs. Usually when it comes to blogs, I have to thumb back a few pages before I really feel I’m seeing something unique and inspiring.

    Thanks for making a post made with two full cups of inspiration and awesomeness.

    Also, thanks for reminding me how much it sucks to live in Georgia. Either sunny, muggy, and way too hot or raining, muggy, and way too wet. Never cloudy and awesome like Oregon or Washington. Boo.

  • Cameron Braun - Loving the 4×5 crops here Jay. Such a good aspect ratio that I have such a hard time shooting myself. Adds a really unique touch to these images.

  • lauren - jay, your photos make my heart pitter patter

  • jayeads - i’m pretty humbled about those comments… my wedding work always makes me self-conscious. thanks for the kind words!

    lauren… spear guns and rivers. that’s all i will say

3 GENERATIONS + BEING RELATIONAL

A message came in from a bride of mine who is expecting her first baby, so we’re planning a maternity session.  Seniors of mine are becoming brides of mine.  One person has been in four of the weddings I’ve done recently, either as a bridesmaid or the bride.  Sisters.  Entire families.  Cousins.  Adoption celebrations.  Memorial images.  Before I break into Elton John’s “The Circle of Life” or “Can you Feel the Love Tonight” – hmmm, why the Lion King theme?

I shot Mary-Anne’s wedding.  I took her bother’s senior pictures.  I took a few 1 year anniversary shots for Mary-Anne and her husband, Connor.  We finished this 3-generation shoot, recently.  I am a quiet, private person, however; personal investment in the lives and loves of my clients is just about the best part of this job.  Not only does it show the clients’ satisfaction and willingness to hire me again (surface but important), it shows a developing trust that can extend for years (deep).  I feel like these ladies speak volumes about the strength, love, and personalities they possess… so I’ll let them do just that.  Some film, some digital.  All family.
