Every now and then something out of the ordinary will occur. I like it! It keeps me on my toes! In this particular situation, I received a Facebook message from a woman who seemed only “slightly” frantic. The message went on to describe how her sorority sister’s wedding was the next day and the photographer that the bride & groom had hired, (I wont go into detail on this) for some reason or another couldn’t do the wedding. She knew that it was a long shot, but she wondered if I could step in. If any of you know me personally, I can’t turn away some one who needs help, let alone a wedding! So of course I accepted, and I’m so glad I did!

I didn’t get to actually meet Tracie and Lawrence until the next morning when they were all dressed up and ready to go! That didn’t matter though, because they were completely laid back and wonderful! Our personalities went well together and they trusted me fully. It was a beautiful day full of quiet moments that melted my heart! It was such a pleasure getting to document their special day! Thank you Tracie & Lawrence! It was an honor!
