This weekend I was again reminded that I have the greatest job in the world. On Saturday I covered the wedding of Threesha & Howard, a splendid affair coordinated by Marguerite Anderson of Petals & Promises fame. Apart from the beautifully decorated chapel, the coordination between the violinist, the saxophone player and the pianist and the fact that the rain held up just in time, the bride was in her element. Threesha is 240 volts of pure electricity perfectly moderated by the totally unflappable Howard. Together they are a wonderful couple and we had a fabulous time working with them. I have never seen a bride dance that much at her wedding and the cake tasted fantastic. All the best for the future guys!
After about five hours of sleep I headed off to meet Sherri-Ann and Alan for a save-the-date seaside shoot. Another fantastic couple who will be getting married early next year. Trust me when I tell you I've never seen such a sparkle in a bride's eyes when she speaks about her wedding. Over a fabulous breakfast of Fish, bammy & festival after the shoot she told me all about it with Allan filling in essential details along the way. At the end of a great session I employed all my driving prowess trying unsuccessfully to keep up with Allan's V6 Honda Accord as he 'flew' back to kingston. I look forward to working with you both.
Again I give thanks for the life I have, I wake up each morning with a smile on my face attributable in no small part to the fact that I wake up beside my lovely wife who supports all that I do. Considering the tumultous times in which we live I feel specially blessed to have all I need and much of what I want. I'll try to add some more pics later.
