As we get ready for Erin (in bright blue, fourth from left) and Matt to tie the knot, we gathered for Erin’s bridal shower on Saturday — and couldn’t leave without taking a few bridal party shots! Erin is a big fan of jumping photos . . . I know this from capturing she and her fiance kicking up their heels in front of the Capitol last fall.
They have long legs. We’ve been joking from the beginning that, at 5’2″, I’m one of the shortest bridesmaids — and these little Corgi-sized legs just don’t have the leaping power I’d like. My timing was always off. We practiced the shot above about a dozen times, each of us popping up at varying intervals. The outtakes are priceless.
But finally — finally, with much practice — we got that picture. “One . . . two . . . JUMP!” Denise cried, showing remarkable timing as she clicked the shutter just as our feet left the air. I’m second from the left in red, acting like the next extra in a “High School Musical” film.
I love this picture. And I’m so, so happy that my dear friend is happy.
