I worked as a second shooter with Kimberly Card, and man. We were BOTH so pregnant. Her more so than me… a full nine months and she was still kicking some wedding photography butt! (In a beautifully magical wedding kind of way, of course). Everyone kept asking if we were due at the same time (I still had 3 months to go at the time, and Kim only had 3 weeks)… so, er. That was confusing for people. Robyn Sutton was there second shooting too, which was kind of cool having a photo trio…. I could totally get used to it. They are both way fun to hang with, so needless to say… it was a blast.
Rachel and I actually used to play softball together in high school back in the day (<– say that in your best grandma voice, you know the one), so this was kinda like a mini reunion for me! It was so great getting to see so many familiar faces and catch up… SO random that I would end up there, small world I guess! She’s such a foxy mama too, she was working the whole bridal thing! I was totally impressed! Al was such a southern gentleman, and if that wasn’t enough he even came with snazzy socks. They were SO so sweet together, you could just sense their deep friendship under it all… it was really something. They had such a sweet ceremony, then partied the night away on the dance floor with one of THE greatest wedding bands I’ve EVER heard. That’s no exaggeration. Forreal. All I’m saying is at one point the guitarist busted out an entire guitar solo WITH HIS MOUTH. There’s photographic evidence… don’t just take my word for it!
SO so happy for these two, congratulations you little lovebirds! Now on with the goods… Rachel+Al, take it away!
