Rebecca & Simon (& Optimus Prime)..

It is well known & publicized that I do indeed love my job..  I’m not going to go on & on & on & on & on & on & on about it, but when someone asks “why? why do you love your job so much?”, I will give them the link to this post, & then tell them to go & meet Rebecca & Simon.  I love it when clients & photographer are just a great fit stylistically speaking & this wedding is a super-dooper example of this.

I could say.. “This was like the bestest EVER wedding & these guys are radtastic & everything was perfect, & magic fairies flew around sprinkling love dust”.  But what I really loved about shooting their wedding was that Rebecca & Simon were just themselves, & they are both interesting people, & their wedding was very excellent.  But not excellent because of the aMAZing overseas location or because they had 98237962345 celebrity guests, it was excellent because it was Rebecca & Simon’s wedding…  and Rebecca + Simon = ACE !  (I did see one magical fairy, but it may have been a seagull)..

Juanita Toddward you are a true magician of composition. Especially love the 4th last and last images. but even more I love your ability to tune into the quirkyiness of your clients. (or maybe they tune in to your quirkines…??) either way its a helluvu tune :-)
