Wedding season is flying by. I’ve already shared a few shots from this Chicago wedding on my Facebook page, but here’s a little something different.
You could say photographing this wedding felt like being around a lot of old friends you’ve known forever. That was probably because I have known Christin forever. She singlehandedly drove me home from high school, every day of my Junior year, in a busted down SUV named Spencer. When Christin got engaged, she reached out and brought me back to my roots below the Mason Dixon to shoot her wedding in Auburn, Alabama. Christin’s family has a long tradition with Auburn. Her grandparents and parents were both married in the same church where Christin and Coley exchanged their wedding vows.
I figured what better time to share this wedding than now. Everyone loves Christmas in July.
I’ll leave you with this, a photo of me with two of the people I was closest to in high school. This is what an entire day of photographing a wedding in the Alabama heat does to you. These gals introduced me to local music and shaped me during those formative adolescent years and I’ll love them always. Triforce forever.
More later, but for now, just this one. I asked Jess and Matt to bear with me for 5 minutes while I tried something new, a rather ominous request when the sky is rapidly turning dark grey and threatening to poor down rain on your wedding day at any moment. They obliged and we made this photograph. Thanks for being risk takers, you two.
