I was a bit nervous. I always am before the big day. Still, I looked forward to capturing Josh and Tonja’s wedding for awhile, well the last few weeks anyway. A rising rock star marrying his Alaskan sweetheart–it’s hard to beat that. I captured Josh with his band, Young Fangs , at a local concert a few months back. He saw the photographs and when I inquired on whether he had a wedding photog he told me I do now. I got excited.
A week later they invited me over to their place for dinner. We talked. We laughed. We ate. I asked how they got together. Tonja said they had been good friends for a year or so and did everything together until one day, over video games, Josh kept on scooting closer and closer, until he basically was on top of her, making out. cute.
The big day finally came. Forecast projected scattered showers with overcast skies, equaling a dismal “big” day. I felt depressed going to bed the night before, worried about the weather, but when I pulled back my bedroom curtains, the sun nearly blinded me. I whispered a thank you to God for the gorgeous day and said a quick prayer for steady hands and open mind for the day’s capture.
Ceremony in the woods, location in the fields, and paddling away in a canoe after reception. I couldn’t mess this up.
