My good friend Ashley and I have been gathering images to help create and album for a bride and groom. I know the experience is different for each person, obviously, but I get so nostalgic looking back at images that I shot. I know what my role was while I was there, and I hope I execute it well each time, but when I review the photographs and I feel everything that was happening all over again, it makes me feel, well, like I wasn’t there as a vendor, but rather there as a good friend of the family taking pictures. I love that. This family imparticular has become quite dear to me. I recently photographed Shayna’s sister’s wedding (you’ll see it soon too), and I am great friends with their mom. We text regularly and meet at Starbuck’s regularly, just for fun! I love them all so very much, and am grateful how this work has provided me with opportunities to find the people who always needed to be in my life!
Shayna and Alex, I am sending you both a big hug. Thank you for sharing all of these gorgeous memories with me!! Both of you are so kind and so filled with generosity of spirit and mind!! Thank you again for welcoming me into your family!!!
Shayna and Alex, I know you are truly happy. I see it every time we are together, but I wish you year and years and of hearts filled with even more happy than you could imagine!! Much love to you both!! xx KJ
