We’ll get to the proper introductions later on. For now – Intern Gabriel has leveled up and this is +Gabriel’s first wedding post with us – and WOW – he’s really pulling out all the stops. He was photographing this wedding in Goldsboro, N.C. while I was photographing a wedding in Wilmington, N.C. – We cannot express how happy we are to have +Gabriel working with us here at LeahAndMark.com

I have always prided myself at being able to emotionally connect to my photos. What I didn’t understand was that there are a million other photographers out there who do the Exact. Same. Thing. That was a big let down for me at first, because I REALLY do love the emotion in my photography, and thought that it in and of itself was unique.
My time as an intern with LeahAndMark opened my eyes to a whole new world of photography. I had previously told myself that all the ways that I wasn’t shooting was by preference, that I just didn’t want to shoot that way. The truth is, that I just had never taken the time to learn those different ways, and I was shooting myself in the foot because of it.
My photography has changed drastically over the past 3 months. I think of things differently, I SEE things differently. And I can only hope that change continues to progress and find its ways into other areas that I am not as comfortable with.
I still have an emotional connection with my photos. I really feel that each one tells an important story, and that is what I want to do with my photography. The difference now is that I do everything I can to tell those stories from a perspective that not everyone else is telling it from.
These pictures are from Abhineet and Jenny’s wedding in Goldsboro, NC. The wedding was a traditional Hindu Indian wedding and it was awesome. I know that nearly every post you read about a wedding includes a line from the photographer saying it was awesome. But really.
It. Was. Awesome.
In one day, I shot not one, but two ceremonies. The traditional Indian Wedding and a Chinese Wedding ceremony as well. Oh, and lots and lots of dancing. and celebrating. and amazing food. and, you get the picture.
Abhineet and Jenny – thank you for allowing me to be a part of your incredible wedding!
