I had the pleasure of photographing Jason and Tracy’s wedding last weekend. They were married at the Timothy Demonbreun House, a bed and breakfast near downtown Nashville.
When we sat down prior to the wedding to discuss the look they were interested in, they told me they weren’t really looking for anything stodgy or too formal. Most important of all, they wanted to have fun. I couldn’t ask for a better couple to work with: Calm, cool and relaxed. It was not only a pleasure to spend the day with them, but their families and friends as well who welcomed me so warmly. Truly brilliant people all around. They have some wonderful support.
I was filled with a lot of gratitude that day. Some of it was for the love between the lucky couple and seeing the new life they were about to embark on. I always enjoy being in the presence of a couple that truly loves one another and watching the back and forth between them. These are the kind of people to be observed and studied in the hopes of picking up a secret or two in the process of building and sustaining a healthy relationship. These things are never accidents, successful unions are on purpose.
I was also clobbered with a pleasant sense of humility about where my life is right now. I’m so grateful for the opportunities that are unfolding in front of me. Life just keeps getting better and I never thought that I would be where I am today just a few short years ago. What a ride. Such cool people I get to meet along the way.
Congratulations to Jason and Tracy. I hope you have many years of happiness together.
