just before forever…

Aimee emailed me Wednesday and said “I know this is a long shot, but I’m getting married on Friday….” and something in me jumped at it.  Even though I don’t take weddings on.  And even though I’m closed for the month.  And even though it was a weekday and even though……

I love simple weddings, the kind that are about the two people and that moment and all the real stuff.  Truth be told, I’ve been itching to photograph a wedding for well over a year.  And while I normally refer all weddings out without a second thought or pang of regret, in the last couple of months I’ve had a few opportunities come my way that I really, really wanted to take, but the dates just didn’t work.  So I sent my husband a text asking if he could take the morning off and keep the kids.  He said “but you don’t dooooo weddings….”.  I know, but….never say never.  And it just worked out.  I’m so so so glad it did, I loved doing this.  LOVED it.  It was freezing cold this morning as we met up just before the ceremony and they were total troopers.  It was such an honor to capture their special day!  Congratulations Aimee & Jonathan!
