I still get nervous before shoots. I remember this shoot being no different. Even after shooting Chelaine's senior pictures, her family pictures, and her engagement pictures, I still sat uncomfortably in my car, my stomach mimicking Mother Nature's most recent tantrum, just moments before Chelaine and her husband Robbie would be exiting the LDS temple connected, eternally. As they did this my anxiety fleeted and through their families warm embraces and natural joy, I was rest assured that today was going to be easy.
Easy comes in many forms. It presents itself when bridesmaids laugh at every terrible joke you lob at them. It appears when you can poke fun at the groom for yawning more than talking. It then reappears when his yawning regenerates into a congregation of laughter, everyone in sight a member of this hilarious moment. Easy also can translate into a wildly entertaining reception. It welcomed itself on the dance floor as the bridal party put together a choreographed dance so rousing, it deserved a spot in "Chicago". I'm sure as parents it wasn't easy to pull off such a demanding day, but it was absolutely easy to enjoy. This is Robbie & Chelaine's wedding day.
