This past Saturday, this Northeast Ohio wedding photographer took on four roles in one day. You see, not only was it my mom’s wedding day, but also my son’s prom night. So, in one day, I was the:
- Daughter of the bride
- Wedding photographer
- Prom mom
- Prom photographer
And I killed it, walked in to the day with my Lady Boss face on, and I crushed it! I even managed to get in some of the wedding and prom photos, thanks to my husband who is also my wedding assistant. Was it difficult at times? Yes. But, I am a mom, and we know how to lady up. I cried during the ceremony, but through those tears I nailed the photos. My dinner got cold as I took prom photos, but it was re-heated and still tasted amazing. Thanks to my cousin’s boyfriend, and a quick tutorial from myself, I was even in my family’s big group shot. Some days are crazy and chaotic, but I think that is why I love what I do. I can think quickly on my feet, and make it all happen.
The wedding day was perfect, from the gorgeous flowers to the beautiful cake, and of course the wonderful couple. I have never seen my mom so happy, she was glowing all day!
Yes, my poor son had to wear a suit ALL day LOL. He was an usher in his grandma’s wedding, and then it was his prom night. Look at how handsome he is!! And his date, so gorgeous and sweet! I was honored to take photos of them, and of my son’s best friend and his date. I even got myself in some of the photos, and my husband. Proud parent moments for us for sure!
It was a long day. But a beautiful one!! I feel so blessed to have such amazing people in my life, and that I get to capture it all. Take the photos, all of the photos! Look at the one below, myself with my daughter, mother, and grandmother. Four generations. Not a lot of people get to have this kind of photo, and relationships with such amazing women, but if you do, take the photos!
Now, look at the happy couple! So in love, and so blessed to have found each other! How did they meet? You will have to wait for their official wedding blog in a few weeks!
