There are a lot of reasons why I love being a wedding photographer but one of the most underrated is the connections I make simply by being in the wedding industry. Case in point: How I met Michael and Lori.
At a bridal expo last September, I was placed right next to a live band that would be performing all afternoon and, as any photographer who exhibits at bridal shows will tell you, being stuck next to the music can be a giant obstacle to communicating with potential couples at a bridal show.
Thankfully, the live band in question was called Mic Drop and, while I didn't know it at the time, two of their three members would be walking down the aisle themselves nine months later.
It didn't take long for my friendly banter with Michael and Lori at the expo to lead to a booking and I'm so glad they chose me because their wedding day was one of the liveliest, most fun events I've been lucky enough to shoot.
Turns out when the bride and groom are incredible musicians, you get an incredible reception. Who knew?
So, if you're a fan of awesome couples who can really bring the party to the next level, check out Michael and Lori's wedding photos for yourself by clicking here.
