I think this is part of the reason I love being behind a camera. My camera allows me to step out and look in. I know this kind of sounds like I use my camera to avoid talking to people, but look, that's not how it goes (not most of the time, anyway). I'm just taking a break from the conversation to tell a story in a different way. Or at least try to.
When Nick and Marli asked me to take photos at their wedding, they said they thought it would be something I'd have fun doing.
Guys, I had so much fun.
A wedding day is such a rush of emotion. As a former DIY bride (I feel like we should receive some sort of medal for surviving the wedding planning process), I can no longer attend a wedding without seeing all the work that goes into it, and paying close attention to the behind-the-scenes excitement going on among close family and friends who have been involved the last few days (weeks, months) of planning, making, organizing, stressing out. I felt honored that Nick and Marli invited me and Murdo (he was a groomsman) to be a part of it.
Here is their wedding day story, as best as I can tell it.*
