Every time I sit down to write a blog post, I struggle with what to say. For me, a big part of being a wedding photographer is not only making my clients look gorgeous in print but also sharing their unique story.
During Jason and Krista’s wedding, it truly was an honor to observe how their love swelled and affected everyone near them. With my perpetual writer’s block, I worried how I was going to articulate the magnitude of the day….
So I asked Jason for his help. Below are his touching (and sometimes funny) words:
Two and a half years ago Krista and the girls walked into the gym where I work, and she literally took my breath away. I insisted on showing her around, and I strung it out for as long as was humanly possible. I was thrilled when she decided to stay. Without trying to sound creepy… I tried to talk to her any way I could. I made sure I was there to greet her every time she stopped by. I made myself as available as possible. I used to buy the girls cupcakes and cookies “just to be nice”…yeah….but it NEVER WORKED. Everybody else knew that I had “the hots” for her, but she was oblivious. Frankly, I had given up hope after I bought her tickets to take the girls to a puppet show, and she didn’t invite me.
One Saturday, she mentioned that if I was ever interested in hanging out, she would like that…… WOOHOO!!!! We were outside; I nearly fell over trying to get back inside to get my phone, so she could give me her number. An hour or so later, I met her at the mall for our first bit of time together. I remember walking through Discover Mills thinking, “Please don’t say anything stupid,” and, “Don’t blow this.” I had been waiting for this moment for a lllloooonnnngggg time. That first day was wonderful. She was amazing, and we had a great time. I had no doubt from the very beginning that I would fall completely in love with her if she would give me the opportunity to stick around.
To make a long story short…. that’s exactly what happened. I still can’t believe that this all happened. I told her she was more than a dream come true because I would have never dared to dream so high. I see her as the most beautiful woman alive. She is so good to me…. so accepting of me and my faults and failiures…. so affectionate…. and so willing to give of herself. She has been there for me every step of the way when nobody else would give me a minute of their time. She constantly reaffirms her love for me; she is amazingly wonderful in every way.
I have no idea how I cam to this point in my life without her. She brings the light of heaven with her every time she walks in the door. I am helpless and hopeless without her. Thank God for my Krista.
Congratulations! I know you will have a happy life together!
