Bridal Show 2010

I have been stressing about this bridal show at the Best Western in Cobourg since I signed up for it in January. For those of you that know me, I tend to over-react a little. Yes, I said a little. I admit it, I was freaking out inside. I was so nervous that my booth was going to look amateur, that I was going to feel amateur, and that people would walk right on by. Well, I am not an amateur!! An Arabian Proverb (thanks Scarlett) says "Compete, don't envy" So, that's what I did. I held my head high, and believed in myself!!! I did not allow myself to be a shrinking Violet!! My dear friend Jen came to help me out and give me moral support. For that, I thank you. My mom and dad both stopped by to give their moral support as well. For that, I also thank you. To all the brides that stopped and complimented me on my photographs and inquired about my packages and helped me believe "I'm worth it" Thank-you.
Also, thank you to my new photography friends, whom without your continued support I wouldn't have made it through the day.

I've attached some of my pictures from the bridal show. I, a photographer, forgot my camera. I must say though that I'm pretty thankful that's all I forgot! The coordinator was gracious enough to snap a couple pics with her cell-phone and email them to me. The quality isn't the greatest, but you get the drift :)

This image seemed to be the most popular. It was my very first wedding, in Cuba!!!

This was the only album I had and really was only looked at by maybe 5 people.
Most people just looked at the big ones hanging up.

This was the twine I used to hang up the pics. I will not be using clothes pegs again.
Lesson learned:)

This was a mini trash-the-dress album.

What's a little Bridal Show without wasabi peas!!!

These are the two cell-phone shots!

  1. WOW, Erin!! Fantastic job! It looks amazing! Glad it went so well. I'll have to look up one of these when I get to Alaska. Good for you for stepping out of your comfort zone and putting yourself out there!
