Okay, let’s start off this post with some happy happy news. I found a 4 leaf clover today, only 2 days late. And things in my personal life and business life are changing in some amazing ways. But the really important thing is that a week ago I had the privilege of hanging out with Claire and Bobby, my Reese Witherspoon and Jude Law resembling favorites who are getting married this December, and it was awesome.
Claire and Bobby have a super cute love story (much of this paraphrased from their wedding website, apologies if I muddle the details). Bobby grew up in Georgia but skipped across the pond to attend ‘Uni’ in Scotland (and so did my husband, Garrett, for his first year, which is one of the reasons I instantly just HAD to book this wedding, though of course I didn’t tell Claire and Bobby that at the time), while Claire grew up in Birmingham and went to Auburn University. At Auburn, Claire became friends with two girls, Sallie and Sally, who she met independently but turned out to both be close friends with Bobby, who came to visit while bored at home during a break from school. Claire realized how cute Bobby was and the rest is pretty easy to figure out. After lots of long distance gchatting, tweets, skyping, plane trips, they are finally both in the same place and have found a home in Birmingham and I am ridiculously excited for them. To quote their page, they are “big time in love”. I love it!
We spent the day on the funnest of dates (if you are feeling short on ideas for romantic strolls with your love you should seriously schedule a session, I’m always wondering why I don’t actually go do all of the fun things I’m always photographing more often). We spent the day tooling around to Church Street Coffee and Books, the Oak Street Garden Shop, and Vulcan Park (a Birmingham must-see), on a day that began with hot hot sun and ended with a chilly breeze (that’s so Birmingham!). I most loved being an onlooker, a habit left over from my anthropological studies I suppose, but seeing couples in love forget that I’m even there, that is my favorite. While I photographed Claire and Bobby from outside of Church Street, a girl even asked if they knew I was photographing them. Ha!
