Sometimes as a wedding photographer, it's easy to get jaded and forget how important an individual wedding can be when you've shot a ton of them in a given calendar year. At a certain point, you inevitably start going through the motions in your head and every shoot tends to blend together. Because of this, I pride myself on getting to know my couples on a more in-depth level than just clients so that when their day comes, I can be just as excited as they are for the big moment they're about to have.
But even if I didn't do that, and even if I didn't psych myself up for every shoot, I wouldn't have had a problem getting hyped up for Crystal and Andy's November wedding at the Salem Cross Inn in West Brookfield, Massachusetts.
Crystal is one of my oldest friends and a person who has had an incredible impact on my life and her fiancee Andy is, by far, one of the nicest guys I've had the pleasure of meeting. So to see them come together on an absolutely gorgeous late fall afternoon and pledge to spend the rest of their life together was not only rewarding personally, it was inspiring professionally.
And that's exactly why this was a wedding I had been looking forward to for years. But even in my most optimistic of moments, I would never have predicted how amazing this day would actually be. It was, in a word, perfect. And no one deserved it more than these two.
As always, thanks for the follow and let me know what you think!
