She was working on a feature for their first issue and asked if I’d be open to photographing it. I think I nearly fainted out of my chair. Once I recovered, and did a little happy dance, I replied with a resounding YES and probably way more exclamation points than is professionally acceptable. We immediately started working on things and coming up with a design concept for the shoot. I reached out to my dear friend Cheryl-Anne of Kast Events to help make this vision come to life, and she did just that and so much more!!
Last August, surrounded by the most amazing vendor team you could put together, they created (and I photographed) this dream come true. Taking those images will forever be one of my favorite days. The very first time I got to be part of an editorial team, and it’s a day I’ll always remember! As with any editorial, we had to wait to share the images until the magazine came out last Thanksgiving, which was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done as a photographer!!! I mean, just look at the beauty I got to capture!
Since then, the relationships with these vendors have grown into some truly beautiful friendships. Ones I’m thankful for both inside and out of the wedding world. I can’t tell you how much I love this team and what they create. They’re each very talented artists, and I’m in awe of their work every time I see it!
I just want to close out with saying a huge thanks to them all! I love you so much and am so proud to know you! Thank you for making this shoot such a success!
Be sure to tune in tomorrow to see ALL the images from this shoot in addition to the magazine spreads seen here!
