09 December, 2015 Asbury Park, NJ Lesbian Wedding
Once upon a time (in 2012) I took a trip to Center Moriches, NY for a shoot with Rebecca Dolber from R.E.D. One of the models was a girl named Phelan. We kept in touch over the years on social media and one day I heard from her with some good news! She wanted to let me know that she had met the love of her life, Paula, and they wanted me to photograph their wedding in Asbury Park, NJ. We Skype’d immediately and started planning.
I knew this wedding would be pretty incredible. From the ocean view, slick outfit changes and the dance moves to 679…to the custom cocktail list and sushi bar by the fireplace. What I didn’t quite expect is for it to involve so many cool friends that I would actually miss once I left. Their group was like no other. We all went out for pizza the night before and after the wedding we did a quick wardrobe change and went to a karaoke bar in our hotel until the wee hours of the morning. I typically get to spend a full day with each of my clients and their family/friends but it’s just not enough time to hear all of the backstories. I am so happy to know Phe, Paula and their friends. Wish we all weren’t so far away! I didn’t sleep that night and had to drive a couple of hours to the airport at 4am. Wouldn’t change it for the world. I live for these moments and these love stories.
