Jay Eads Photography bio picture

A random snap at a wedding I second shot.  Nothing more to say that the image doesn’t do a fine job of, all on its own.

When I second shoot, I like to meander while the primary photographer does their thing… no point in standing side-by-side.

This is not the Jersey Shore… but he has the swagger for it.  Well done, single guy.

We all get bored at weddings now and then… why not celebrate someone who is bold enough to let it show?

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…

    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.
