David and Jennifer: Married [Lee's Summit, Missouri]

April 20, 2015  •  2 Comments

This blog post is dear to my heart for a lot of reasons, but mostly it involves a big part of why I am a photographer. I was in high school when I got an email from a stranger (to me) but a friend of a friend.. She was a photographer looking for an assistant. Who, me? I'm just a teenager who loves taking my camera everywhere I go (but deep down have no idea what I'm doing.) Photographing a wedding was way beyond flowers in the backyard and the sky as I drove to school. She met me at a coffee shop, handed me her camera and a book on photography signed with a note and took me under her wing. For the next few summers we photographed wedding after wedding, too many ring shots to count, conversations comparing reception dinner food, and dreaming about details we would want at our own wedding. Jen became a dear friend and mentor and eventually the one who helped bring Isaac and I together. 

My heart was blessed and honored when Jen came asking for ME to photographer her wedding day. Once again I responded to her "Who, ME?!?." A photographer needing a photographer for her wedding is no small thing. Jennifer and David, thanks for letting us document your day. We couldn't be more excited for your marriage! and to Jennifer.... I love you, it's because of you I do what I do now and I'm forever thankful!
