When Diana and Levi booked me for their Grand Junction wedding, I truly had no idea what I was in for. Even though I live nearby, I don’t get the opportunity to work with local clients as often as I’d like. Diana and Levi are into all kinds of things that I know absolutely nothing about. They love things like fishing, hunting, and dancing. Okay, I admit I was a competitive dancer as a kid, but it’s nothing like swing dancing. And fishing? My favorite kinds of fish live in aquariums (which are one of my favorite things by the way). They’ve taught me many things in my short time getting to know them as clients and let me tell you…the absolute best thing about them is the incredibly kind people they are! From the very moment I walked into the door at their wedding, their friends and family treated me like I was one of their own. I think a lot of photographers mention this quality about their clients, but the truth is that not all clients make you feel like one of the family – and we don’t mention that to just be nice! There truly are certain kinds of folks who welcome you in and you feel like you were a guest at their wedding and you’ve known them their entire lives. Those are the best kinds of weddings and this one was definitely one of those! Diana and Levi are just all smiles all day long every time I get the pleasure to see them and that’s exactly what their wedding was like!
A few of my favorite things about their wedding day included Diana’s dress, a drove release, and the dancing…oh the dancing! First, Diana’s dress had an amazing lacy racerback style. I get to see many clients in many different dresses and most of the time the dress is a good fit for the client. But this dress was next level! After getting to know Diana – I literally could not imagine a more perfect dress for her style or personality, it was gorgeous! Diana and Levi also did a dove release, which was a new thing for me. You’d think after hundreds of weddings you’d get to say you’ve experienced this once or twice, but nope! I admit we were a bit nervous about capturing those doves, but I think we did it justice. Last, the whole evening was full of dancing. Levi is tall – as I’m sure you’ll notice, so he was able to toss around his partners like nobody else!
So, enjoy this day and the dirt we kicked up to get some epic couples sunset shots!
