My first BIG deal
It's the real deal. And it's a big deal.
You may remember that I did engagement pictures for my friends.
They loved how the pictures turned out.
So after talking about it with her Mom and fiance, the bride decided that she wanted me to photograph her wedding.
I said 'No'.
She waited a few weeks and asked me again,
and again I said...'No'.
Tooooooo nervious. I got an instant stomach ache every time she asked me.
That's reason enough to say no....right?
She asked me a third time.
I talked it over with Brian and a close friend, prayed and slept on it for a night.
I said yes. And then almost threw up in the bathroom.
If you know me, you know this is nervious-oh-my-gosh-it's-here- wedding photographer face... Before you go any further, I have to highlight a couple of my favorite moments:
-Photographing the groomsmen in the cow pasture, while precariously stepping over enormous piles of poopie.
-watching my sweet friend turn into the most beautiful, sweet, blushing, youthful, quintessential bride.
-the love note that the groom wrote to the bride brought her to tears. She adores him and seeing her read his love note to her was incredible.
-the bride and her Daddy were standing on the ramp leading to the outdoor ceremony. She looked expectant...and he...wow. He brought tears to my eyes because he looked the way my own sweet Brian will probably look when he walks his daughter down the aisle. FULL of emotion.
