Chasity & David - Cherish these moments

February 07, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

 Back in September 2017 I had the pleasure of capturing the wedding of Chasity and David.  The wedding was beautifully done in their backyard in Lawrenceville, GA.  Chasity found me and my work online and said she really loved what I do.  She has a fitness background as well so that was another connection to my work.  David is a US ARMY veteran so we hit it off as well as I served for 6 1/2 years myself.  

During our consultation she said she was keeping a tight budget for the wedding so she planned it herself, employed help from friends and family but she wanted to get the BEST photographer she could afford so she decided on me.  I was honored to say the least.   I love weddings and enjoy seeing two people commit to each other and seeing two families celebrate on one beautiful occasion together.  The day turned out perfect.  The weather was beautiful and not too hot and I enjoyed working with them.  Chasity and David really love their dogs and so they incorporated them into the wedding.  The dogs added that extra punch of cute!

Another reason I really love my job?  I know that photographs can be in a family forever.  I know that they could be displayed on a clients home or at their job etc.  I take pride in that.  A quality wedding album can be passed down to children and grandchildren.  On this day Chasity's three sisters served as bridesmaids.  One of her sisters shared with me that she had STAGE IV cancer and asked if I could take a family portrait for her because "she wanted her daughters to have something to remember her by."  My heart dropped.  Then my heartbeat raced.  In that moment I realized how important my photographs of her and her husband and daughters would be.  I gathered myself and did my best to control my emotions.  Yes I took a few family photos of them and her and her husband thanked me.  I felt privileged that I was able to get them those photos and I actually believe they will be in that family for generations to come.  

I checked with Chasity just last month to see how she and David were and to check on her sister Jamie in particular.   They were actually all just returning from a trip to the beach as they are trying to make the best memories with the time her sister has left.   Once again I got a heart check.  I think I am a strong person until I hear about situations that I have never been through and I see how people are dealing with and living through them. 

So today I wanted to celebrate Chasity and David who allowed me for a day to be a part of their lives and family.  I wish you all the best in your love and marriage.  I also wanted to send love to her sister Jamie who is battling cancer very gracefully and whom I'll never forget.   I hope my pictures were just what you needed.  ;o)

Enjoy some of the photos.  Jamie and her family is the very last photo.
