Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


Saturday, April 14, 2012, I was pleased and honored to photograph my first wedding.  I am not a professional photographer and I was a little scared and very unsure of myself being the source of photographing memories for someone’s special moment in life.  My friend was very supportive and said she really wanted me to do this for her.  She said she had confidence I would do a good job.  How could I resist.  I love taking pictures and being given free rein to do what I want on a photo shoot was like giving a kid in a candy shop permission to indulge himself.  I enjoyed myself so much, I forgot to be scared and nervous.  This was all due to the support and encouragement of the people I was photographing.

So today in the middle of sorting and processing her photos I was reminded of some graffiti or murals I had taken of brides a year ago and decided to use them in today’s post.

These graffiti murals were painted on the side and back of buildings in two different communities located in the city of Pittsburgh.
