Akers Wedding

There are so many things I loved about this wedding, but one small thing holds a small piece of my heart. Kelsey happens to be another bride that booked with me while I was working at Alfred Angelo. The funny thing is when she met to book with me, she had no idea I worked at the shop. Naturally one of the first questions I ask my brides is if they have found their dress yet. At that time, she told me she hadn’t purchased yet but said there was a dress she had her eyes on forever that she was almost positive would be the one she would end up getting. She turned her phone to me and showed me one of our gowns. From that moment I knew we would have a special experience together. A few months later, she came in the shop and I had the privilege of being her stylist (which I didn’t get to enjoy a lot since I was in management). We tried on so many gowns but the dress she had her eyes on since the beginning was the one she said yes to. Even though photography is definitely my greatest passion and God’s calling for my life, it wasn’t easy for me to say goodbye at Alfred. It was the first job I had found that I could really say I loved. But experiencing my first months as a full time wedding photographer with the brides that I built relationships through that store has really made every moment through this journey even more special.
