This wedding was different for me because I was also invited to attend as a guest, before I was hired as the photographer. Brad happens to be my long time boyfriend’s older brother. With a family of 3 brothers, Abbe and I have learned to stick together when the family reunites. I’ve known these two since I started seeing Mitch way back in the high school years and they were the cool older couple in college.

As we all got older, Brad and Abbe got engaged and I still remember being with Mitch when Brad called to tell him he had popped the question which led to me violently whispering interrogations¬†that Mitch deflected, he isn’t the sentimental type like I am.

Fast forward to Christmas and Brad and Abbe trusted me to take their Save the Date photos. This was back when I was still learning my way around my old Canon Rebel T4i and I remember thinking, “Man, I really want to photograph this wedding” but of course, I didn’t say that out loud. I mean, I was just a college student with a camera and an impossible dream.

Boy was I wrong. To say I was honored is the biggest understatement. The fact that Brad and Abbe asked me to photograph their wedding was a huge milestone for me. To me, it signified that I have grown and bettered my work enough that people I consider my family would trust my work. You always hear people say they don’t want to work with family, but I think it’s the ultimate sign of approval.

This wedding day was full of elegance, class, and love. The day started with a mimosa bar for the girls and a beer and BBQ for the boys, that’s how you just KNOW it’s a good wedding. I had a blast spending the day with such incredible people and I made some new friends along the way. Brad and Abbe, here’s to you!
