Yes! When you get to shoot the wedding of someone you've known your entire life! The fun part about weddings is that you are privileged to see every single emotion that the couple and their families are experiencing that day. When it's someone you know, it brings an emotional element to the table for me as well.
So, when my sister Kim's friend Mandy (did you follow that??) emailed me and asked if I would capture her wedding day, I was both honored and humbled. She's a girl after my own heart...as her wedding's the day after Thanksgiving. I LOVE winter holiday weddings...the lights, the calendars, the music, the festive spirit. I'm as excited as my sister is for Mandy and Matt's wedding! :)
Anyway, over Labor Day weekend, I got to finally meet Mandy's husband-to-be. We met up for their engagement session, and Matt didn't disappoint! He's handsome, witty, and oh, did I say witty? He had me laughing with his jokes and smiling at his sweetness towards Mandy.
Matt and Mandy, CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm honored and excited to be a part of your big day!
Matt is an accountant...right now. He did tell Mandy and I that in a former life he was a model. This picture was taken the moment he told Mandy that he had been an underwear model to be exact. Evidently, it was a surprise to her!
Hello pretty lighting.
