***Because this particular entry happens to be in this special week of "unblocked blogging", I'm going to ramble on a bit in this post, and in subsequent posts this week. I feel I need to truly blog about whatever right now without limitations. If you don't want to read my blabbing, feel free to scroll straight down and check out one of the cutest couples I've ever met.***
I was asked to do my first wedding pictures over Labor day weekend. When I heard that my friend Michelle's little sister Sammi and her beau Andy were getting married, I was only too
thrilled to take their 'wedding day' pictures. I traveled down to St. George for the big day and enjoyed almost
every minute of it.
The day we were supposed to leave I really felt sick. I had already been feeling it for about 2 days leading up to Saturday but then Friday night I got hit hard. To the point where I couldn't
help Steven get ready to drive down. I was winded just walking around and after crashing upon arrival, I had a hard time getting out of bed the next morning. By sheer determination I got myself up at 11:30 and got ready to go. I was nervous and concerned about getting the "right" shots. Slight pressure trying to capture "memories to last a lifetime". (You see the pressure I put on myself?) Making that happen in a new city where I was unfamiliar with my surroundings posed a challenge but, I think it went well. Thankfully!!! : )
Sammi and Andy are so TOTALLY
in love with each other!! We started at the Temple in St. George and from there we explored some new territory together. For them, that new territory was the first minutes and hours of married life. For me it was exploring new locations in an unfamiliar town. We had a blast! These two are so photogenic and were willing to work for great pictures, on their wedding day no less, and I think that's exactly what we got. I was honored to be a part of the event.
These two may be the happiest people I know right now. Soak it in...you'll feel better. I already do.
