One of the toughest parts about being a wedding photographer is, every once in a while, one of your closest friends is going to get married and you have to decide whether or not to put yourself out there to shoot it (If asked) or hope for an invitation to be a guest instead. Such was the case with Brooke and James' October wedding at the Farm at SummitWynds in Jefferson, Massachusetts.
I've known James, and for this rest of this blog I will refer to him as JD, from my college years and for as long as I can remember, we've joked about what his wedding would be and the hijinks he would inevitably get into.
This is the same man who wanted to bring a Money in the Bank briefcase to a friend of ours' wedding and "cash in" on me during a speech I was to give, hoping he'd be able to shock those in attendance and deliver the speech himself instead.
As such, I always pictured myself as a guest at his wedding, watching the fun from afar but when the time came and he actually told me he was getting married? Well, this was one shoot I knew would be far too fun to pass up. And I was right.
Brooke and JD had the wedding I always pictured JD would have and much, much more. It was, without question, one of the most fun times I've had behind the camera and lived up to all of our expectations and then some.
This really was, as their invitations promised it would be, the "Best Day Ever."
