When Jeff messaged me to say he was sad that I didn’t live in NC anymore because he’d just got engaged, I don’t know who was more excited when I got to tell him I was moving back! I’ve known him for nearly 10 years now and watched his incredible career grow and transform and him always with a huge smile on his face. We’ve had lots of fun head shot and event photoshoots together but they all pale in comparison to his big day! I was so excited to meet his fiance, Jeff, I was bouncing up and down in the hallway of the hotel waiting to begin their morning session. They had chosen to capture a fun pillow fight in their matching boxers in the room before starting the day and I cannot think of a better way to be introduced to someone’s love. They are SO fun together, constantly picking on each other and flirting, and since Jeff’s best man, Trey was in the room during the shenanigans, we were all rolling with laughter.
The rain held off perfectly as we set up for their quaint outdoor ceremony at the Hamlet Depot and Museum while the trains rushed by surrounding them with a bit of history and beauty.
Jeff sang during the ceremony with one of his friends and they even had a surprise performance from some of their friends of their favorite song from Rent, “Take me or leave me.” All the guests were thrilled and happy to sing along, they have so many talented friends surrounding them.
I am so happy for you guys!! Thank you so much for inviting me to participate in your beautiful day!!
