I had the pleasure of photographing a Cape Cod wedding recently. It was an intimate and beautiful celebration! Valerie got ready at the Oceanview Motel in Centerville, MA.
The ceremony was held at Osterville
Baptist Church in Osterville
, MA. The reception was held there as well. After the ceremony we went to Dowses Beach in Barnstable
, MA for some photographs of the wedding party and the newlywed couple. We had lots of fun with the wedding party and got some cool images in the short time we were there.
Back to the church for the reception which included a grand entrance and some fun events and dancing. Their cake was beautiful and looked delicious!
I had a great time during their wedding and my daughter Kayla assisted me for the first time at a wedding. She was very intuitive and knew right where to be the whole day, helping me capture some great images all day. Thanks so much Kayla! Great job!
Funny Story about this wedding:
I now have a new title to add to my current list of qualifications. “Emergency Wedding Photographer”. Let me explain a bit.
I was contacted on the evening of Easter Sunday, April 12th by an old friend, inquiring about her future sister-in-law’s upcoming wedding. She wanted to see if I was available to photograph their celebration. You see, up to that point, Ron and Valerie had not elected to hire a professional photographer to capture their wedding celebration.
After speaking with several friends who had chosen the same, and regretted their choice afterward, they listened to others advice and decided to go with professional photography. There was only one problem. Their wedding was on Saturday, April 18th
! How would they find the right professional photographer when the wedding was in only 6 days?
Word-of-mouth was the only way!
Fortunately (for me), I was available that coming weekend and happy to photograph their wedding! Neither Ron nor Valerie had visited my website or seen any of my images. There would be no time for us to meet in person, since the last few days before a wedding are very hectic and busy. They would have to rely on my friend Maria’s recommendation and they did. So, I spoke on the phone with Ron and Valerie, got the details for the ceremony, reception venue and we came up with a last-minute plan to make their wedding celebration one that they would cherish for many years.
It was certainly a pleasure to be able to capture their wedding images and be part of their special day! Ron and Valerie: the love you both have for each other clearly shows through your images. May you always feel that love when you look at each other and your images. Thank you so much for choosing us…and a special thank you to my friend Maria for your recommendation. It’s people like you who keep us going, doing the work we absolutely love! I can’t wait to be part of your wedding celebration this coming summer and capture your memories as well. It’s going to be a blast! I just know it!
So, if you or anyone you know is in need of Emergency Wedding Photography, contact me. I can’t guarantee that I’ll be available, but if I am…I’m always packed and ready to go on short notice! Until next time…
