It’s not everyday that you get to take your own sons’ engagement images. I am so excited that my oldest and precious son is getting married to a wonderful woman. I couldn’t have picked anyone better and more lovely for him. I am excited about this next step in his life and admittedly I am also a little sentimental. This guy has always had a hold on my heart and even though I knew these two would eventually marry, when it got real I recognized that there was a process of stepping aside and allowing us both to emotionally let him take this next step in his life. I am looking forward to my mother-son dance with my son. Sometimes I think about that moment that is coming soon and it makes me tear up. I sure do love that kid and I am so happy he has found the one – the one that will love him as much as I do.
I did photograph their engagement but I have hired my dear friend and photographer Angela with Photography by Ajay to photograph the wedding. I learned a good lesson from my dad. He photographed my wedding and at the end of the day he said he would never do that again with any of his other kids. He said he didn’t get to enjoy it. I don’t want to miss a second of this special day.
