I have shot I am sure over 100 weddings in my short career. Clients call me up and ask to see my work and they most times book me to shoot their special day. My last wedding though was really special. My life long friend Kristen calls me up and says he is going to propose to his girlfriend , who just happens to be my cousin Lacretia. So he asks me to photograph the surprise proposal (which we aced by the way) at Ichiban one night, the images came out beautiful and Lacretia was more than surprised. A few weeks later I get a call from him and Lacretia on the phone (and every conversation thereafter would be like this) asking me to capture the rest of the wedding activities … (Wedding Shower, Engagement Session and Wedding Day). Now like I said I’ve been asked to shoot a lot of weddings, but this one was different because the wedding day they chose was actually my birthday! Now usually I am on a break from shooting from around this time of year, but for my friends I knew this rule had to be broken.
I ended shooting the wedding shower and the engagement session (Pictured Below) and the wedding on May 18th, 2013, which by far was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever shot. The wedding from top the bottom was well planned and I could not think of anything I would rather be doing on my birthday than shooting the union of 2 friends of mine! Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Johnson.
