i have always been fascinated with the royals. when i was young my parents bought me every piece of literature they could find on charles and diana’s wedding. i poured over it. soaked it up. everything i played, pretended, was royal. when princess diana died i was rattled, almost like she was a close friend in my contacts list. you can only image my current obsession. all things kate and will mesmerizes.a magazine filled with their images compels me to stop. everything. and consider what it’s like.

emma and dave’s original wedding date was slated for april 29th. i jumped inside thinking, i will be able to shoot a royal wedding on the royal wedding!!! then their date changed to the 30th of april which was absolutely perfect, because kate and will asked me to be the 1000th shooter at their wedding. so i am going to head to england, shoot the royals, then fly back that evening, and shoot emma and dave’s incredible wedding the day after!!

then i turn the page, and realize i am dreaming. kind of.

emma and dave’s wedding is really going to happen. and i really get to be a part of it. and they are like royalty to me! i can’t wait to see how all of their details unfold!

dave is a prince and he holds the heart of this princess. they are so good together. their life is going to be regal, majestic, stately and magnificent! i wouldn’t miss their wedding day for anything, even if an invitation came directly from the queen. i would have to rsvp regretfully seeing as i just wouldn’t be able to fly across the pond in time to make it in time to emma and dave’s fete! ;)
