I was wandering around Lauritzen Gardens,
scouting locations for a fun engagement shoot.
I passed by a guy that was looking anxious and kind of eyeing me.
He was with a woman and so I wasn't too worried, they looked kind, just anxious.
And then he said to me,
"Are you a photographer?"
And then, rather quickly he said,
"Would you be interested in shooting our wedding here tomorrow?"
I was shocked, excited and curious.
You see, their scheduled photographer ran off with their money and was never heard from again.
I was so sad for them.
A short conversation later and BAM, I was shooting their wedding.
It was the most quaint and sweet experience.
Just their immediate family, exchanging of vows, and the dinner.
don't underestimate the power of simple and quaint.
I love that their definition of simple included hiring a photographer.
Here is to forever-
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Gillis!
A few of my favorites...
