This weekend I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of one of my middle school besties! Katie was seriously one of the most beautiful brides I've ever seen! She never stopped smiling, the whole day. She made sure - all day long - that Caleb and I were good to go, that we were fed, etc.! It's also always great when you are referred to by your own name (even by friends/family) and not just "the photographer".
Their day was seriously beautiful...and it really just sparked so much happiness in me. The day was running on schedule, their vows were poetic (Kurt seriously could be a poet...), and their reception was wild. Katie grabbed the mic from the DJ and rapped an entire old school rap song. She hasn't changed a bit. Oh, and did I mention she's STUNNING?!
Here are just a few of my favorite shots from their day...
Although it was a long day, it absolutely recharged me; which I understand seems like an oxymoron. We had so much fun, but this wedding also made me realize how far Caleb and I have come in this business. We are far more confident than ever before in our skills and abilities - and that makes me a better photographer. It's so great to also see Caleb take charge with his own ideas and ways to make our couples smile. He's the best. I'm thankful for the nearly 50 something bride and grooms who have trusted us with their big days...they've absolutely made it all worth it!
Saturday's wedding was our last one for a couple months, and although I'll miss photographing for a bit, we're absolutely in need of this break. Shooting 3 January weddings isn't something we normally do, as this is most photographers "off season" - so I'm ready to enjoy it!
Sunday, we heard a great (football related) message at church, enjoyed a little lunch date, grocery shopping, and a whole LOT of netflix binging (no regrets). I hope you all had an awesome, stress free weekend!!
PS - I also can't wait to get back home because TONIGHT I find out if I'll be getting a baby niece or nephew this summer!!!! I can hardly focus right now ;)
