When Nancy called me, literally, two weeks before her wedding at the Mission Inn and said she needed a photographer, I thought she was kidding. Then, when I met her and John, I was still in disbelief. Here’s this super nice, really attractive couple wanting to book me 14 days before their wedding?
Well, OK then.
We met and about 45 minutes later we had all the details worked out; it also helped that when we did need to meet before the wedding again, our families literally live about 10 minutes from each other. Bonus.
I am still in disbelief as to how smoothly the entire day went-it was actually, AHEAD OF SCHEDULE (with Nancy being a chemist, I can’t say I was that surprised, but still…it’s a wedding, things happen). It was so ahead of schedule, in fact, that it allowed us to take advantage of a rare, quiet afternoon around the historic hotel grouns for some amazing photos.
These next two photos are why I *always* encourage brides and grooms to hire two photographers. Here is my version:
