In March 2011 I received my first email from Amanda. She was a future bride who had been referred to my website by a friend of her fiancee. Amanda was looking for someone to photograph her wedding day.
I replied to her email, crossed my fingers, said a prayer and waited to hear back. I was thrilled when she decided to meet me for coffee. Along with her, she brought her groom to be, Dustin, and his parents – All of whom I came to love. They are seriously some of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. We chatted about their wedding, about how they met, and I shared samples of my still relatively small photography portfolio. At the end of our meeting we said goodbyes and I’ll never forget Amanda turning back to say “I’ll definitely be in touch with you soon!”
Not long after that day Amanda did get in touch as promised and her and Dustin officially asked me to photograph their wedding. In August of that same year we met at Disneyland for their engagement session. Uhm, Can you say adorable? I love these two.
Then, two years ago today it was time for the BIG day and I am still eternally grateful that Dustin & Amanda chose me to be a part of their amazing day! It’s truly been and honor.
Happy Anniversary Amanda & Dustin!
