I am sometimes honored to photograph the weddings of my friends. Sometimes it’s one or the other that I know. And many times it’s both the bride and groom that I know and I have to say it’s a lot of fun to do so! This was true of Lauren and JP. I knew JP first, from a zillion years ago. And actually only met Lauren upon their engagement. But we were fast friends and by the time their wedding came around, I felt like I’d known her for years! When JP told me about Lauren before I met & while discussing their upcoming wedding. He said “I just want to make her happy. She’s so great, Ashley. I’m really marrying up.” I laughed at this because JP is a really funny guy and cracks jokes all the time. But he was dead serious. And it left me with a lump in my throat that honestly, never really went away.
Ain’t love grand?
