As far as engagement sessions go, this one was pretty awesome… it was for family after all.
I got a call from my cousin James asking if I could be his photographer for his upcoming wedding. When I heard that James had proposed to Becky, I’ll have to admit… I was surprised. James had dropped some hints about proposing in the new year and had already asked if I would consider being the photographer but I wasn’t expecting to be documenting this momentous occasion this year! Surprise was quickly overcome with congratulations and happiness for my older cousin. He definitely deserved to have a special, kind and loving person in his life and Becky showed up at the right place and time.
From a paramedic to an army veteran returned from Afghanistan to an engaged and soon to be married man, I am so proud of James in so many ways. Growing up, he was like an older brother to me… he let me play with his toys (seriously, I didn’t really like playing with Barbie… Really? Why would you want to play with a doll when you can play with G.I. Joe, toy tanks and some pretty cool car sets. Yeah, yeah, definitely a tomboy. But I digress…), listen to all his cassette collections (wow, is that word still in the dictionary?) and just let me hang out in his room for no reason at all. Pretty frickin’ cool.
James, I can’t believe it’s come to a point in our lives where I get to document such a special moment in your life. I’m so honoured that you’ve asked me to be your photographer and I can’t wait for your wedding day next month. Becky, in the short time we’ve spent together, you already seem pretty awesome and I’m really looking forward to getting to know you better!
So much love & hugs, Jenne.
