We suffered some major losses over the course of 2020. For my wedding couples that meant big changes to the dreams they had laid into their wedding plans. That included Jason and Christy. Read below to hear about my time as their Engagement Photographer.
I can’t even imagine how hard it must be to pour your heart and soul into planning a wedding day that represents your love for another person. That envelops your family in the love you feel for each other. From choosing the perfect colors to the perfect meals. It occupies a solid year or more of your time. Then one day, you wake up and are told your venue is shutting down. You can postpone, or in some cases reduce your guest list by 75% or more. No dancing, no buffets, guests will have to wear a face mask.
It isn’t the wedding you’ve planned for. And that’s just not fair.
This was the case for Jason and Christy. I remember meeting them the first time. They are a kind, sweet couple. Jason is just head over heels for Christy. When we talked about their wedding day plans, I remember him looking at her lovingly and saying “I just want her to have whatever she wants”. And I can see why. Christy is a thoughtful, down to earth woman, who clearly loves him just as much as he loves her.
So when they called me to say they were going to have to postpone their wedding day a year, I said “well let’s do something to celebrate what should have been. Let’s go do some photos!” Off we went to Stoney Creek on what would have been their wedding day. This was the first time I’d gotten to work with them and we had such fun. Fortunately Jason was a fan of my cheesy jokes, and and posing prompts I love to use for genuine laughs. At the end as we were walking back to our cars he told me he was excited for their wedding day, and he was going to prepare with jokes of his own.
Enjoy some photos from their session. I’m excited to post their wedding photos next year, but for now, I’ll relish my time being their Shelby Township Engagement Photographer!
