I’m convinced as a photographer, there is nothing more awkward than actually being in a friend’s wedding party. Don’t get me wrong.. it was an absolute blast.. but being on the other side of the camera is SO much easier! Photographers are infamous for being terrible at posing themselves, add in the intimidation of having your own team capture these images while in a frilly bridesmaid dress and primped hair and makeup… well no wonder I started drinking so early!
So a little back story.. Derrek is one of Jason’s close guy pals when he and I first started dating 11 years ago. Megan is one of my best gals that I had met in the days of banking years ago. I still remember Megan asking if I knew any great guys and the only one that came to mind that would be perfect for her was Derrek.. however he was in a relationship at the time. As time went on and their paths changed, they officially had their first date in early 2012 and shared so many crazy hobbies and interests it was pretty much fate.
Over the past few months of planning we’ve seen their love flourish, the expansion of a new furry friend and a new house that’s just blocks from ours (Score!). A big thing for Jason and I is creating “Friend Family” aka not necessarily blood but as close as any other family member. Derrek and Megan are most definitely some of the best friend family we’re blessed to have and have the warmest wishes on their future! Love you guys!
