When I was a younger version of myself, I had this vision of what my life would be like as a professional photographer. I imagined a lot of high profile clients, a lot of glam and gloss, and an art-filled life in NYC photographing product for big magazines. Never in my life could I have imagined that I would be shooting a wedding for the daughter of my mailman, or how much it could possibly mean to me.
I never thought I would be a photographer in a small town or that it would fill my heart in such a way. When Allison came to visit me, we realized the connection of her father being my mailman. I realized I wave to this guy as I come out to the box and he waves right back, always so cheerful. He is so sweet. I am grateful that I was able to photograph such an important day for this family. I got to capture his beautiful speech for his daughter and their first dance. It is so fulfilling that I am almost at a loss for words.
Allison and Adam’s wedding was at the Calvary Chapel of Hammonton, and it was full of genuine tenderness. One of my favorite moments was from right before the ceremony. So they wouldn’t spoil the ‘No-Seeing-The-Bride’ tradition, they both closed their eyes and joined hands around a corner, so they could pray together before their vows. I mean…….WOW. It nearly brought tears to my eyes. Eastlyn Golf & Greenview Inn throws an elegant party so it was easy to find great natural light and scenery for all. I was happy to see the familiar face of Dom from 80 South Productions on video, because
I know the bride and groom will get excellent results from him. Lots of love happened on this day, and I was so fulfilled to have been the one to capture it. It’s days like this that make me appreciate all of the opportunities my small town has given to me. I wouldn’t want it any other way. At all. Like.
