Shooting for a friends wedding is so much fun and a highlight of mine in wedding photography! I love the fact that I already know the bride or groom before the day of the wedding or engagement pictures! One of the main reasons I meet up with a couple before a photo shoot and their wedding day, is to get to know the couple better so I can better know how to serve them on their wedding day.
For my most recent wedding, I have had the privilege of knowing the bride for many years! Life has been busy for both of us and because of college and life we don't see each other like we used to. What better way to reconnect then to be the photographer for her wedding!
Naomi and Brian met as they were both attending Messiah College. Both art majors became fast friends. Slowly their friendship grew into something more and they started dating. While I don't know Brian very well, just through hearing Naomi talk about him to attending the bridal shower, hearing Brian's mom talk, and seeing Naomi and Brian talk, play, and work together, it is clear to everyone who knows them that they were made for each other!
I can't wait to see the work of art that God will grow and shape their marriage into!
Here are a few highlight pictures from their wedding day!
God bless you both Naomi and Brian as you begin this new chapter. May you be a masterpiece as you live your lives together serving Him in all you do!
