A little preview from Kate and Gareth’s wedding at the Tillamook Forestry Center. Can’t wait to blog this whole wedding.
One thing I love about my job is witnessing all different types of events. I’ve seen weddings with 400 people and I’ve seen weddings with 12, and everything in between. All are beautiful, all are different. Jessica and Doug choose to have an intimate ceremony on a Tuesday in July and I was lucky enough to be hired to capture it. One other element of their wedding that was awesome and meaningful was that we took photos at several places where significant events for Jessica and Doug’s relationship happened. Such a pleasure working with these two.
We started Tommy and Matt’s shoot on a dock south of the Hawthorn bridge, where we were greeted by a drunk, shirtless man, who declared to us (at an uncomfortably close distance) that “anyone who doesn’t say America is the best country in the world gets thrown in the water.” He then continued to stand really really close to Tommy and Matt, where he told us that Tommy was the CEO and that Matt was his best friend forever, and then select things that both of their button up shirts were “saying”. If your confused after reading this, then I’ve described the situation well. In the end I was just glad that none of us were flung into the river, and that he finally assumed a reasonable distance from us.
I’m really grateful for Tommy and Matt. I met them for the first time at a meeting where they were considering hiring me as their wedding photographer. I instantly felt really at home around them and like I was with long time friends. They are sincere and kind men that share a really beautiful and inspiring relationship. I’m so excited to shoot their wedding this fall, but I’m even more excited to consider them friends.
Tommy and Matt, thanks for sharing the evening of your shoot with me and I’m looking forward to many more!
