Diana and Matt’s wedding was many things to me. Their Horning’s Hideout wedding was fun (more on that later) and it was a brand new experience for me.
I had never traveled outside of Texas for a wedding. It didn’t really hit me until I landed in Portland, OR, but it blew my mind that I was flying to a whole other state to photograph a wedding. Seriously? Photographing a wedding? Somewhere else besides the state I live in? For a couple who only had met me on Skype?
Four years ago, when I set out and took the risk to pursue wedding photography as a full time job, I never imagined that I would be asked to travel this far to photograph something so important. I can not explain how incredible and grateful I feel to be doing this for a living… Making friends all over the place and photographing their love and commitment to each other. This is unreal.
Diana & Matt are so fucking cool.
I remember when we first met on Skype, Matt was a little quiet. To try and get them to open up, I told them that I met my girlfriend on her engagement shoot. Lol. Matt lost his shit laughing. It was fun times with them ever since. And their wedding was so much fun that it got shut down! Haha. The music was supposed to get turned down, but the playlist was all, “Turn down for what?”. Lil Jon always get the party all riled up. I don’t think anyone had any regrets. It was a great day and everyone had fun. I think the photos say it all.
