Christine & Eugene Marry at Franciscan Center

What a privilege it was to shoot Christine and Eugene’s wedding.  I have known Christine since she was a rookie teacher whose classroom was just down the hall from mine. And when she first told me about this special man she was dating (while we peeled wallpaper from Shari’s guest room walls in her new home; it’s amazing how we remember these moments!), I just hoped that someday she would ask me to photograph their special day.  And she did.  Her ONLY request was that I capture the look on Eugene’s face when he first saw her walking down the aisle; as you can see from the photo below, it was a great request.

It’s always fun when I can gather the entire wedding party for a true group shot!

Christine’s students made the wedding even more special by sharing the ceremony with her and Eugene.  Above are members of her Speech and Debate team and below members of the Advisory Board.  They all look great!

Eugene’s son Jalen served double duty, as a groomsman in the wedding and helping me shoot some great photos with my 300mm lens.  Thanks, Jalen!

And sometimes I just get lucky, even if the bride and groom were not so fortunate. As I prepared to shoot a photo of them greeting guests, a hug somehow turned into a gymnastics feat. The only casualty was Christine’s fingernail.  And the entertainment value was priceless!
