Simply Beautiful

September 27, 2010


Earlier this summer I was afforded the opportunity to assist a wonderful photographer friend of mine with a wedding that she was doing. You can only imagine the level of excitement pumping through my veins as the day approached. Although I had never met the bride or groom before the wedding day, it was clear that they were very in love and just a wonderful couple. Matt and Emily had a  sweet sweet wedding and an equally beautiful reception! The looked like Barbie dolls and had such a wonderful sweetness about them that was heartwarming. I loved every minute of being there. Since I am still portfolio building, it was awesome to be able to watch the ever fabulous Susan Sparks of Susan Sparks Photography work her magic with lighting, background and outside temperature issues. She made it appear so easy although being their truly helped  me get a true handle on what it is like to be the lead photographer at such a momentous  occasion in a couples lives.

The reception hall was exquisite! It was clear that this couple had class!  I don’t know what else to say except that is was such a pleasure to be a part of this event. Thank you Susan for entrusting me to assist you. Although you think I am already ready to sail, hopefully one day when I do, I will be as calm and collected as you were!

Here are a few of my favorite images from the day! Please feel free to leave some blog love in the comments so I know that you were here! Love and God Bless you all!

    Thanks Cassandra! Linda…I don’t know, solo sounds scarey! I feel like a newly standing kid who won’t let go of the mom’s aprin. Ajira…thanks for the support love. I would love to get together. Let’s get on line and make a date. Weekends work better for me. Jen..thank you! I am excited and nervous all at the same time.
