A while ago I made photographs of a client’s office for his brochure. Recently, he called me on a Thursday and asked if I was available on Saturday to photograph his wedding. He and his partner of 20 years announced a year earlier that they were going to get married, but while their families hoped for a huge, traditional wedding, they opted for something much more intimate.
They located the judge who helped them adopt their son 14 years earlier, and she was available on short notice to officiate on Saturday. The judge and I arrived at their home, and their son and I served as witnesses. There were only five of us there for a 10-minute ceremony. Regardless of the duration and the number of people, it was a remarkably beautiful wedding. The couple will use my photos in their wedding announcement.
