You know those little moments when you realize that everything is going your way, and although you’re supposed to remain calm, in your mind, you’re dancing and squealing like a small child because of all the perfection? That was my constant mental state during Rachel and Aaron’s epic wedding a few weeks ago. I had been looking forward to their wedding day because (1) they are awesome people that I totally adore, (2) their engagement session was so much fun, and (3) they booked one of the best venues in the area, especially for an autumn wedding. They had obviously put lots of time and love into each detail of their day, and it came together beautifully.
Beyond that, they trusted me. It’s such a crucial element in a successful photography session or wedding. They let me take control during formal photos. They let me try new things. They let me work, and they let me rest (they let me drink some of their phenomenal beer, too). They understood that my job was to document their day, their friends and family, and their wonderful celebration as they joined their lives together.
It was any photographer’s dream wedding, and it was the absolute perfect way for me to end my 2014 wedding season.
