Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
To be quite honest, pop-up weddings make me nervous. I was nervous that they’d be disappointed. I dreaded that my photos wouldn’t be like the light-filled images she’d hoped for. I didn’t get a chance to do my typical pre-consultation and client education. It was misty and cold, literally 5:54 PM when we started….I had MINUTES to shoot what I deemed absolutely necessary to capture. I got a little bossy (love y’all!), but I wanted to deliver…..
Because this was a love story for the ages. When my husband told me their story (they all work together!), I was not only willing to drop everything on a cold, January Friday night….I was eager to see what kind of story I could tell through the images. And as it turns out, I didn’t tell the story. They did.
While it’s nothing like the warm, sunshine-light filled weddings I anticipate doing in the spring and summer, I hope my images show that it was the most intimate, moving, and encouraging display of love that I have ever witnessed. At the end of the day, I know if I can look through a stack of linen-textured, fine art prints before handing them to my clients, and FEEL LOVE woven throughout each of them. If I can FEEL IT, then I know I did my best. Never mind the light, regardless of how much time we had, forget the towering cake, and the details certainly did not matter, this day belonged to them…..and now, they are one big happy family.
