Hands down the best part of what I do is being a part of people’s lives. Sometimes it’s people I’ve known for a long time, others have come into my life through photography. Either way after I worked with them, it’s like we’ve been connected forever. When you share special moments like weddings or births or any milestone, it ties you to them in such a unique way. This bride, Randie, was my BFF in fourth grade. We had nicknames. I was Tweety; she was Boom Boom. I have no idea what that was about now, but I remember her friendship and her smile. I also remember that way back when, I moved and she continued to write me…you know letters with a paper and pencil and mail them to me. We lived 20 minutes apart, but it was long distance to talk on the telephone then. So, we stayed in contact being pen pals. I was thrilled when she contacted me, this time electronically, to be her wedding photographer. She planned her wedding in record time, and yet every detail was flawless.
After the ceremony, we stepped out for some digital portraits in the low light.
These two were glowing anyway, but had the added sparkle of those BC Clark rings.
What a joyful, well intended event. Wishing you a lifetime of more of the same, Brandon and Randie!
