The smell of Starbucks coffee filled the air as I frantically connected to the free wi-fi so I could show off a vimeo slideshow upon her arrival. I don’t know why I was so anxious, but I couldn’t wait to meet Christine! She was referred to me by another amazing photographer, and I really wanted her to like me! I knew the second she walked in the door that we would get along great! I hugged her right away and we immediately started talking like old friends. Christine has such a sweet nature, and she was so organized and put together. Paul was sick that day, so I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting him until their wedding day. But wow, he is EXACTLY the type of guy I pictured. So fun and full of smiles, such a positive attitude and fantastic spirit! Paul says that his favorite thing about Christine is that she packs his lunch and snacks everyday (hahahaha), which Christine rightfully translates to her being caring and considerate! I love this couple, and their wedding at The Bethwood was gorgeous!
This was my tear-jerker moment of the day. As Christine began walking down the aisle, I turned around to get a shot of Paul’s face…and instead I found Christine’s beautiful sister…I had to blink the water out of my eyes after seeing this moment.
Seriously? Tyra, are you taking notes on this “smize?!”
