Andy and Beth are Married

I had a lot of fun with this couple before the wedding and after the ceremony was over. It's a joy to watch people just having fun being themselves which makes my job as a photographer very easy. I knew the groom about a year prior and had the pleasure of meeting the bride a couple months before the ceremony. As soon as I met her, I knew they were a perfect match for each other and saw the kids as the cherry on top.

I joked around with Beth and started referring to her as "The Blinking Bride" as she blinked on almost every other shot in anticipation of the picture or my flash. Once I saw what she was doing, I just worked around it while making her and the rest of the wedding party laugh about the situation. When I did my editing I wondered why I had so many of the same shot and noticed that only 1 of 3 had her eyes wide open which was followed by a shot of her smirking as she blinked and laughed. There was no blinking however as she looked into Andy's eyes and said "I do". How cool and special a day this was for the couple who I wish all the best for them and their lovely children.

Wow! What wonderful words you wrote about us. Let me just say that Andy and I are so happy with our pictures. And those that we have shared them with are in agreement that you are a phenomenal photographer. We are lucky we were able to share this experience with you not only as our photographer but also our friend.

Thanks for those very kind words Beth. I have a very cool job in that I get to meet wonderful people like you and Andy and that I get to experience firsthand how God has richly blessed you too with one another. The pleasure was truly mine.

I love the silhoutte picture! It really captures the moment very simply :)

Oh! and PS my parents used to call me Beasley as a little kid!

Have a great new year, David!
