Some people may disagree with me, but I find it so much easier to photograph your friends. I remember when Erin met Colin. She was on cloud 9, goo goo in love, head over heels. All of it. But mostly, she was SO happy. Erin is a pretty happy girl any way, but there is a difference of being happy, and being in love happy. She had it. After meeting Colin, I figured “That’s it, I can add another friend to the ‘gonna get married’ group.” Not to toot my own horn, but I’m usually always right. Erin and Colin work at Half Price Books here in Kansas City. That is where they met, fell in love, the whole deal. It was absolutely fitting that their center pieces and wedding decor showed that part of their lives. Each table had a stack of books that had a similar theme, and on top was something that stood out as a symbol to recognize each novel. Cameras, hats, bridges, flowers made out of paper from books. It was perfect. It was romantic as hell. It was Colin and Erin. I have two favorite parts of the day, ones that stand out and kind of make me tear up when I see the images. We were so busy taking pictures after Erin put her dress on, we forgot to show her what she looked like in the mirror. I know at that moment when she final saw herself, she was thinking about Colin. The second is when Colin saw Erin walk down the aisle. His jaw literally dropped and his eyes filled with tears. Grooms: take note. This is exactly the reaction your bride wants!
So many friends had a literal hand in their day, and I am so happy that they decided we would be some of them. To many, many happy years you guys. I cannot wait to see you to grow as a married couple. Mike and I were so honored you trusted us being your wedding photographers. You’re the best!!
