Sometimes this crazy path of our lives has us come across people who we just need to meet. I like to think that Kristen and Tim NEEDED me to photography every last detail of their totally amazing, awesomely fabulous wedding day. But, really, I feel like it was me who needed them. And their totally amazing, awesomely fabulous wedding day, obviously. It’s not an easy thing to explain, but one of my favorite things about this “job” is the people that I get to meet along the way. They share with me one of their most intimate and important days so far in their relationship with one another, and I get a small glimpse into their way of being. Kristen and Tim really touched my heart, and brought me back to a pretty amazing place that we existed in before getting caught up in the madness of our day-to-day, trying to make it all work, chaotic life. So, I thank them for that…and hope that I can repay the favor by having captured their wedding in the way that they imagined. Before I get all choked up, let me just talk about the amazingness that was this day… One of Kristen’s best friends made her beautiful dress. Tim’s suit was custom made for him. They had color and vibrance and life seeping from every corner…from the beautiful fabric flags to the paper heart garlands to the vibrant tablecloths adorned with field flowers in mason jars. They married themselves…which was probably my favorite thing about the day…because, really, that’s what it’s all about. So, thank you to Kristen and Tim, for picking me to be a part of what was clearly a special day.
