he stood in front of the eiffel tower with the beauty who, in just one hour, would become his wife. he smiled and held her closely in his arms as a spectacular explosion of twinkling lights consumed the tower behind them and i clicked away as what felt like a magical settling of night happened all around them.
the pictures could have both started and stopped there and i would have flown home from paris a happy photographer. much to my delight and joy, though, that photo was simply the centerpiece representing a breathtaking array of locations we visited that day, each of which seemed to be built around the gorgeous couple standing in its midst.
caroline and henry, the words escape me to adequately express the overflowing thankfulness i have for you. not only have you been a delight in my life over the past many months of working together, but you trusted me with one of the most important days of your life…nearly half a world away. that isn’t an honor that i take lightly. THANK YOU for being such a tremendous joy (and thank you for making a dream come true for this small-town, alabama wedding photographer.)
