When I first answered to an anonymous cry for help to assist at a wedding, I had no idea she'd be the one to email me back. Afterall, there are all kinds of crazy people on craigslist. But, after looking at her website I felt privileged that she even wrote me back. Niki lives in California, just outside of San Fransisco. She was coming to Durango to shoot a close family friend's wedding. She's a commercial photographer who also stays pretty busy shooting weddings. She's worked for publications and seen a lot more of the country than I have. In a nutshell, it was a great day. Right as I'd go to do or say something, she'd suggest it. I felt like Nikki was an old friend who kind of read my mind. If I lived in California, I'd probably follow her around a lot more often.
As for Jo and Kelly... AMAZING couple. After only 30 minutes of being around Jo I felt like I had known her for years. Their love was truly inspiring. That, or there was something in the air during the ceremony because my eyes were definitely misty. I'm such a sap.
ANYWAY, I have a lot of favorite moments from the day I'd like to share with you, so I'm breaking them up into two posts. It's like having two birthday parties. yay!
