When my extremely talented photographer friend, Keith ,and his bride, Julia, asked me to be their wedding photographer I was beyond excited! I have known Keith for many years now and we have shared many laughs and tears. When he introduced me to Julia, I remember thinking the first night I met her, that she would be the woman he would marry. Even though we don’t get to see each other as often as I’d like, we have shared many vulnerable parts of ourselves over the last year. Julia is so kind and thoughtful, I just can’t even say or type how highly I think of her without getting teary eyed. There are just some moments that she gets. You know, those moments that you don’t talk about when you are trying hard to keep it together. Well Julia knows, and she always finds a special way to make sure you don’t feel so alone in your moment. That is such a gift. Just yesterday, and last year, and even the year before I think Keith calls me on my birthday and sings to my voicemail. I always love how he apoligizes before he starts, but still gives it his all when he is singing! That’s a true friend right there!
I can also say that just to see the two of them together, it melts my heart. The way Julia says “Keith Dear” when she is trying to get Keith’s attention. The way Keith calls Julia “Nurse Pretty Girl” at the end of the day, when she comes home from work tired and still in scrubs. It’s a special love that these two have. And even after the many little bumps in the road, it ended up being the perfect day.
I love you both! Thank you for letting me be with you on your wedding day.
