I shot my very first wedding in October 2006. I was a nervous wreck and anxiously paced the length of my living and dining room 2,946 times every day leading to the morning of the wedding. By the time JD and I arrived to the ceremony location, I had gone over every possible situation in my mind and talked JD through a myriad of scenarios as if we were on a CIA co-op. All we needed was the Grassy Knoll.
The day flowed beautifully and I was extremely thankful to have worked with such an awesome bride and groom. One thing I didn’t take into consideration was the chance of working with a wonderful wedding coordinator, Courtney Toney of Joyful Weddings and Events. I created a slideshow during the wedding reception and after she saw it, we struck up a conversation, which led to a lovely friendship two years later. Courtney really helped me out in the beginning of my business and sent me some fabulous clients during my first year, for which I was extremely thankful!
I was stoked when Courtney contacted me to photograph her for updated photos of her and her associate, Darcie. We met and wandered the streets of Orange together and had a blast…and just reaffirmed how thankful I am to have met such a wonderful industry peer.
The lovely Courtney Toney...
