Last weekend we were in Huntsville, Alabama to photograph Theresa and Chris’ awesome wedding. Theresa initially found us through APracticalWedding.com – and a few weeks later Leah and I had dinner with her at Mi Barrio down here in Atlanta. I remember being about 30 minutes late to that meeting since I had gotten a flat tire after leaving the office that day (but hey! I’m a guy and you know, I totally changed that tire all by myself… and got really sweaty gross… yeah – that’s exactly how you want to be when you meet with a bride…)
Somehow Theresa overlooked the grease stains on my shirt and she was even okay with meeting up with us at a run down Mexican food shack . (That was before we had a studio – and we were tired of meeting at Starbucks/another coffee shop.) A few months later we met up with Theresa and Chris in Nashville, Tennessee for their engagement session – and that was insane amounts of fun.
Finally – last Saturday we drove to Huntsville, Alabama for their wedding.
We left early on Saturday morning and instead of simply driving on the major interstates to save an hour – we took some smaller state highways through the Georgia and Alabama countryside. We left before dawn (to make sure we’d have enough tow truck time in case anything happened) and you know – there are worse things than watching the sunrise over the farms of northern Alabama. Sure I’m probably romanticizing things a bit – but to a large degree – I’m not. It’s a pretty great thing when it’s my job to wake up, watch a sunrise, and then spend the day with some seriously awesome people on one of the most special days of their lives.
We honestly could not have had a better 1st wedding of 2011.
Thank you Theresa & Chris. You. Are. Awesome.
