I honestly don’t even know where to start in writing about this day. When Nick e-mailed me this winter about their wedding, I was first of all completely stoked because he is a fellow MSU graduate, and then EVEN MORE excited when he told me that he wanted as many non-posed photographs as possible. He was all about me being at the wedding, being that fly on the wall, that participates, enjoys and captures the moments. Period. That’s it. No special effects, no dragged out photo sessions, just purely telling the story. And let me tell you, that is the best thing a client can say to me.
There is SO much love surrounding Nick and Andrew’s relationship. Not only between each other, but between their friends, family, acquaintances, new friends… seriously, you name it. I don’t think I’ve ever teared up at a wedding like I did for this one, and then an hour later, laughed at a reception as hard as I did at this one. The Halfhill backyard was full to the brim with beautiful decorations, wonderful food and just pure support from everyone. I have to give a little shout-out to Nick’s Mom, Renee, for allowing such a wonderful/huge/crazy fun/dance party reception to take place in her backyard, and as Nick’s sister said, “It’s hard to plan a wedding without a bride.” You ladies are the best.
Nick and Andrew — THANK YOU for letting me be a part of this day, and for letting me get a little glimpse into your life. You two REALLY show people what love is truly about, and I’m just humbled I was able to see it all unfold for you. And uh, next time I’m in San Francisco, I’m coming over, sooo get ready for that.
Yes, instead of bouquets, they held drinks. So appropriate.I love these boys, so so very much.
