Written by Jessica - Posted September 23rd - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde
This photo session was very close to my heart. My very lovely and super brainy sister (MD and PhD, making her a double Doctor – please and thank you from Dartmouth) is the star with her equally bright hubby (Mr. MBA from Tuck).
A few years ago, before “A Brit” and I started shooting weddings – Viv and Ian got married. Since they are busy bees it was tough for them to plan a wedding. So when a friend of a friend of theirs said he could be their photographer, they figured one less thing to worry about. Without time to research things they hired him. Sadly, they ended up with out of focus, poorly composed shots. Not to mention barely any shots of them together. Which is completely loco since it was their wedding!
The only thing that is left after the I do’s have been said, the cake is cut, the dress is worn and the music stops – is the photographs. It is so important to find a photographer whose work you absolutely love – hiring the friend of a friend who just bought a cool new camera or a family member who may get distracted and miss the first dance is a big risk.
We knew that Viv and Ian were super blue about not having wedding photos that they love – so when we went to California, we were thinking only one thing: PHOTOSHOOT!
We went to lovely Sonoma for some wine tasting and it provided the perfect backdrop. Both Viv and Ian claim that they are the most un-photogenic couple in the whole wide world. But I say – balderdash to that! They rocked that vineyard and had a ball doing it. Even busted out their signature dance moves which we captured for them. Although it was not their “first dance” – it was still super memorable.
It really meant a lot to us to be able to finally provide them with the images they so deserved.
Happy anniversary brainiacs!
