Today was one heck of a day. My friend Polly thinks I have these busy days just to write about it in my blog but personally I just think she likes seeing her name in my blog. She is my "blog hog". Love ya Polly! I was asked by a good friend to photograph her wedding. Well, today was the day. With the three kids in tow we headed to the rehearsal this morning at a beautiful winery. After hearing the bride’s plans to decorate and handle everything her Maid of Honor and I kind of took the bull by the horns and took over. She had way too much on her plate besides being the bride. So with kids along and 96 degree heat we did wedding set-up all day. The setting of the ceremony and reception was just beautiful. I was able to manage a trip home where the kids and I doubled up on showers and headed back out. Then my photographer hat came out and I took pictures of the whole event.
I was worried about taking such important pictures but once I got in the groove doing what I love it just seemed natural. I think I got about 400 pictures and loved so many of them. Here is one of myself and the bride. It was a ton of fun but after this long day I was ready to cash in my chips. We all had a great time and the kids were simply exhausted. Again, they outperformed my behavior expectations. Although, I did have to take many of the pictures with Joey attached to my leg.
I asked Micky and Joey if they know what a wedding is and Micky said it is when a girl gets a pretty ring from a boy. She informed me she is getting married to a boy but not Joey (phew!) Joey made sure to let me know he is not getting married and is living with Mommy forever. You gotta love that.
Well, after my long day I feel like this but am happy that I could help out. They really make a wonderful couple and I love to see my friend so happy. Now I need to ask her if I can photograph a baby in the future.
Ok Polly, my blog is up-dated. I loved meeting your man. He is great! I give him the Tracy-seal-of-approval.
P.S. My aunt also called today and got her Tea Party Album. She said it made her and my uncle cry. How sweet is that! She appreciated it so much.
