As a photographer when you book a bride whose wedding you love, you are so excited!!! Things like “oh my goodness, I LOVE her personality – her venue looks amazing… Ahh, did you see her dress?! I can’t wait to see how the flowers come together…” are thoughts you typically find yourself having – or conversations with your husband (in my case).
While planning… we have initial consultations and then again with the contracts, then closer to their wedding date we have the details fun part and timeline… sometimes we can squeeze in some coffee dates before and perhaps after their wedding… so when you understand their personality and click, you are genuinely thrilled about /not just their special day but their marriage too…
However, when you have someone enter your life as a ‘bride’ but become a friend- a friend you LOVE hearing from… you want to keep in touch with – someone who you could talk literally all day to at the coffeehouse and you are SO SO honored to see them go from bride to an amazing wife and then soon to be MOM… The joy is completely priceless!!!
I’m blessed to have this happen with my gorgeous friend Lisa Bailey (doesn’t she look AMAZING!!!!) and many many other brides we have seen walk through life’s ups and downs, hills and valley’s – living life one step at a time or as Lisa and Jared did, a bunch of amazing steps all at once! haha. <3 The joy is so thrilling. It just makes my day to see a friend transitioning through life so beautifully.
-Such is the life of a wedding photographer after you are married. 😀
I can’t wait to take their maternity photos and meet baby Emma!!! <3 xoxo
Love you guys!
