My First Wedding

I've gotten some sad news this week. My friend's husband Mike passed away. It was completely unexpected. Theirs was the first wedding I've ever photographed. I've known Kim since we were 16 years old and she gave me the opportunity to be a part of one of the most important day of their lives. I was blessed. They were both wonderful and gave me the confidence I needed. Even though these film scans aren't the best, I have to share a few images with you.

This is one of my favorite moments- everyone was teary eyed when they gave their daughter, Jordan a ring too.

I will never forget taking this photograph below. Mike was starting to get a little stressed and so I suggested doing some fun shots of the boys. Afterwards he walked up to me, gave me a hug, shook my hand and simply said "Thanks." I could see the tension literally melt away. It's still on my website today partly because of the way it makes me feel when I see it. I always smile.

Kim and Jordan, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. You will be missed, Mike.
