dani was a bridesmaid at amanda & matt’s wedding almost 2 years ago…we bonded and have stayed in touch, and she assures me i was one of the first calls she made after greg proposed. they’re getting married this july, so we met up this past weekend. gail werner was in town to help me shoot naomi & paul’s wedding on saturday, so she came along, too…and we enjoyed how utterly magical new england is in the summer.
our first stop was plum island. we found a gross stingray…thing… i told grego as a man it was his job to turn it over so we could see it.
(this one might be my favorite from the entire session.)
this is one of gail’s that i quite like.
after we left the beach, it was time for a flatbread refueling visit before doing some more shooting around amesbury.
grego’s pizza was a little bit sad and decrepit…but it still tasted good (well, i am gathering it tasted good based on how quickly he downed it. 😀 being fabulous for the camera is hard work!)
aren’t they the cutest ever? and isn’t amesbury beautiful?
last but not least…i told dani i wanted to trade legs with her, but she didn’t seem open to the idea. i tried to talk to her about being flexible and willing to experience new things, but she just looked at me like i’d grown a 3rd head.
my very FAVORITE moment from our time together doesn’t have a picture, though…when i met dani, greg was deployed to iraq w/ the national guard…with my soft spot for the military and having some first hand experience with the sacrifices those serving and those at home make…i offered to team up with her and make an EXTRA SPECIAL surprise for greg…so, when he asked me at dinner if i do other types of photography other than weddings, i looked at him and said, “YOU should know. :-D”
dani & greg…can’t WAIT for the party next month!
YEAHHHHH…these are SO awesome Gwyn! I’m sure Dani loved them all. And how awesome is that shot you got with the river and the bridge? TOTALLY worth screwing up your ankle (which, by the way, I hope is feeling better!)
[…] dani + greg are special. in the good and wonderful way. not in the way where you say, “that’s special” and you really mean, “wow, that’s…totally not awesome in any way.” i’ve known dani since september 2008 when she was a bridesmaid in matt & amanda’s wedding. […]
