Derrick and Pague. What can I say about these two? For those of you who don't know, I spent four years in the Air Force. I met these two in those years, and a while after I separated and moved across the country to Utah, I saw through good ol' Facebook that they got engaged! Pague messaged me asking for recommendations for photographers out East, wanting someone with a similar style to mine. I told her I'd be happy to recommend some amazing photographers, but slipped in that I'd also be happy to travel back out there to shoot it! Needless to say, I crossed my fingers, and was SO thrilled when she chose to have me as her photographer! Their wedding took place at the Trump International Golf Course in Sterling, VA. (President Trump also happened to be there that weekend, only left soon before the wedding started! Crazy!)
I never got to see these two together before their wedding day, and oh my goodness, they were MADE for each other. Two complete dog lovers. Two super fun and super sweet humans. I'm so happy that they found each other. Honestly, I can't imagine that anyone could look at their gallery without smiling ear to ear. You can FEEL their joy and ultimately that is my goal with every session and every wedding that I am given the privilege to photograph.
When I was in the military, I didn't necessarily fit in. I wasn't "one of the guys." However, I generally had a pretty good time, and let me tell you, the guys I worked with were HILARIOUS. I was so excited that I was going to see some of them again, and oh my goodness, I was not disappointed. The reception was a freakin' RIOT and I laughed so much! You'll see here. Trust me.
