First Dance

First Dance-8778My son got married exactly a week ago. The hectic time leading up to the big day resulted in a wonderful day of celebration. I debated with myself whether to take my camera. Would that mean I would be become distracted and not fully present? That's a real danger with those of us who love to be behind a lens. I made sure my camera remained in my purse during the ceremony and I resisted the temptation to whip out my iphone as Kim, my now daughter-in-law, glided beautifully down the aisle. But I did take it out later and I think I was able to strike a balance throughout the rest of the day. All in all, I am glad I decided to take my Nikon friend along. Otherwise, I would have missed this shot!
