I couldn’t wait to see them. Both of them, together. I met Lisa during a tasting so she could choose her menu for the reception and we all chatted about the day as the planner walked her through her choices for table settings, salad’s and appetizers, what kind of lighting to use and all the fun fluffy things that make up a wedding. Then towards the end I had a moment to chat with Lisa alone, we were supposed to be talking about photography, what package she may want, how many hours of coverage she might need, but instead we talked about Dustin. She told me about his deployment, Dustin is a proud Marine (hoorah!) and as Lisa talked about the time apart her eyes started to well up with tears…and then mine did as well. She loved him…oh how she loved him and even the memory of missing him still impacted her so much. But one thing was clear, she was happy she did it and she would do it a million times over if it meant she would have the love of her life, she didn’t even have to say it…I could just tell by the look on her face. So I had to see them. Both of them, together. And months later at the rehearsal for the wedding I finally had the opportunity and as Lisa walked down the sandy aisle towards Dustin in her bikini and sun dress practicing for the big day and it was there again, that look on her face, and I quickly turned to look at Dustin and there was the same look on his, mirroring hers. They were as in love as two people can possibly be. It’s witnessing moments like that when I realize that I’m so incredibly blessed to be a photographer.
