Every once in a while I receive an email that stops me in my tracks. So much so that no matter what time, what date (well, as long as I'm not booked), what location - I'm there, baby. A word to all potential clients, personality and individuality go a long way. Visual aids don't hurt either. Sweet miss McKenzie did both.
McKenzie emailed me exactly one month before her wedding. Clearly last minute, her email was titled "a desperate plea". By her third sentence in she was telling me about her farm and the sheep, ducks, alpacas, chickens, and honeybees that live there. She also attached a photo of her wedding invitation (below) that she illustrated herself. Take me now, sailor! I needed to shoot this wedding.
Did I mention the farm animals dressed pretty for the wedding too?
And thus began a most sincerely beautiful wedding day
Be sure to check out McKenzie's illustrations. She makes some beautiful work! I'm jealous of her skills.
The ceremony was held just down the path from McKenzie & Jamie's house. It loved how everything took place on the farm but it felt like three entirely different locations. And wow, the ceremony site was a dream.
McKenzie & Jamie - I'm so glad you guys emailed me. I feel honored to have gotten a glimpse of your beautiful life. Let's be friends. :)
