the leslie knope guide to being a wedding photographer
So you want to be a wedding photographer? Well I'm here to tell you all about it via the medium of animated gifs of everyone's favourite Deputy Director of the Pawnee City Department of Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope.
Are you ready?
When I'm psyching myself up for the day ahead...
When I turn up for getting ready shots about two hours early. Just in case. Every time.
When I can tell that no one is going to get ready on time.
When someone steals my images.
When I wonder what I'd need to win a Fearless Award.
When I haven't had a toilet break in about seven hours.
When the light is terrible & you're running out of time
WHEN I TRY AND MASTER INSTAGRAM STORIES
