I think you know that I take my job personally. I put my heart into it. How could I not? I am humbled by the chance to document people’s memories. It’s always important and personal to me. Yet, sometimes, it’s more personal. This wedding was one of those times. I’ve known Kim for years. I can’t exactly remember when we met. Maybe it was at Hanby middle school or maybe it was at Blendon Junior High. (Honestly, my childhood memories are a smidge fuzzy. I’ve lived a bit since then.) Anyway… Kim and I, we go back. Like most… we went through high school and went our way in life. We reunited at, of all obvious things, a class reunion. Thanks to facebook, we stayed in touch.
A few years ago, I photographed her son’s senior photos. Then, on facebook, I started to see a hint that maybe she had found someone. Sure enough… One day a proposal photo popped up in my feed. SO exciting! Thankfully, she asked me to be a part of her day.
Kim works for Westerville’s parks and recreation department. Her office is in the Everal Barn. Most people don’t want to get married where they work but Kim would be an exceptional exception. For her, it was the absolute perfect location. I think she chose well.
Look at that smile. THAT is what an in an inappropriate joke will get ya!
GORGEOUS! That’s Michelle… Kim’s maid of honor, best friend and an awesome woman. Yet another awesome high school friend, Tracey, and her two fabulous daughters. SEAN!!! Our handsome groom… Tracey sang during the service. I am so envious of her ability to do that. It’s pretty special to sing at your friend’s wedding. Hot…. Now… It’s time to have a party!!!
Her first dance images were so sweet… Yet more examples as to why I love the first dance. Great night. Right?! Yep… But it’s not over.
We went to the Old Bag of Nails or some libations and a live band! So… the band is The Debits. And… they were AWESOME!! I HIGHLY recommend them! Look at her. This giggly face hasn’t changed much since school. Love her! More high school pals. I think this wedding could be called “Reunion… Light”.
It was a fun night! So glad I got to be there and capture some fun stuff as well as see some old friends. Congratulations Kim and Sean!!!
Want to know one of the best things about my job? I get to meet awesome people when they get married and then… later on they come back with awesome little people in tow. And Asher is an AWESOME little guy. He’s got personality PLUS!
This face!! Adorable!
He’s adorable and he’s a nature lover.
He and I were playing around while his parents changed clothes. Remember when you were a kid and you’d spin till you got dizzy? He did and here’s the result. I know it’s not for everyone but there’s something about it I really love.
So happy to see Andy and Melanie again! And had a blast playing with Archer!!
A couple of years ago, I took some senior photos for an adorable girl named Holly. Guess what?! She has a younger brother, Tyler, and he’s actually just as awesome as she is. So fun to spend a little time with him before he jetted off to a tennis match.
