Henry and Katherine are the sweetest. Oh how I love a woman that knows what she wants, and diplomatically goes after it. Katherine is that woman. She’s marvelous.

The story of how Katherine found me is just too good..and I have to share. I’m a member of several photographer’s associations. Some of my favorite people are photographers. Several years ago I found myself in a group of such photographers, The Association of Media Photographers. Now, I realize that I am NOT a media photographer, but I am a believer in learning all I can about what I do. I have learned a lot from working with a fantastic editorial photographer, a commercial photographer, even a food photographer. There is always something I can learn and apply to my own genre. Plus…those folks wouldn’t touch a wedding with a ten foot pole.

Katherine works with one of my photographer friends in the group. When she approached him for a wedding photographer referral, I was one of the names he passed along. Katherine contacted me, we met, hit it off immediately, and were off to the races. Several months later, after Facebook friending Katherine, one of her friends, Whitney, was tagged in a post. I sat back in my chair, scratched my head, and had to call her. “How in the world do you know Whitney? She lives in Colorado.” Katherine replied, “She’s one of my best friends. She’s in the wedding.” I was floored. I was Whitney’s wedding photographer 3 years ago. Katherine told me she was one of her bridesmaids. I pulled out Whitney’s sample album that I’ve used for years, and there was Katherine. 🙂 It was meant to be. I was ecstatic to see Whitney at Katherine’s wedding. She’s as lovely as ever. I love full circle stories.

 

Aren’t they both beautiful? I’m the luckiest wedding photographer ever!

Khadijah is a part of a family that has battle scars that have only made them stronger. The women in her family are kind, compassionate and love each other with a fierceness that rivals my own family. It was unbelievably inspiring to watch these women come together to celebrate Khadijah and Colon on their wedding day.

I worked with Colton and Khadijah last fall for their engagement session. From the second I saw them, I felt the tenderness in their relationship. Colton absolutely adores Khadijah…how could he not? She is graceful. She is lovely. Her beauty radiates from the inside out. Any groom that gets teary when he sees his bride has me. I stole little moments all day with my camera. Colton proudly rubbing his new wedding ring during the reception, sneaking a little kiss on her ankle when he pulled the garter off, and the admiration in his eyes as he watched her. These little things that went unnoticed by many spoke volumes to me about the love and devotion he has for his lady.

It was an amazing day.  Thank you both for trusting us with so much. It was an honor. That day will live on forever through the pictures we took.

Your impression on my heart is deep.
