When I first heard that Mark had asked Sabrina to marry him I was so excited for them. They are both amazing parents to their sons and genuine people that deserve happy endings. I was hoping that I would be asked to shoot their wedding but I understood if they didn’t want to mix friendship and business.
Rewind to a July 4th party where they went from asking for referrals of wedding photogs to by the end of the party booking me. Previous clients and good friends, Josh and Nikki were at the party too, and weren’t shy about giving them their opinion on my work. It was humbling to hear them talk me up like some celebrity. In the end it all worked out and I had a wonderful time documenting their special day.
My good friend and amazing photographer, Carrie Pratt of Studio Blu Images was on hand to second shoot with me and here is a link to her favorites from the day which she blogged about earlier this month. I want to thank her for doing such an amazing job of capturing the groom and his attendants as well as the awesome details. I can’t wait to repay her this spring when I help her by second shooting a wedding.
So the lesson in all of this may be that it’s ok to break the rules of life sometimes. That you just might walk away with something magical.
Here are a few of my favorites of their day.
Congrats again, Mr. and Mrs. Lever.
