We don’t always meet our couples until their wedding day, which always makes us a little nervous, to be honest. We do our best to exchange phone calls and emails enough to know that we’re a good match, but we don’t really know what they’ll be like until we meet face-to-face. Well, we certainly got lucky with Melanie and Stephen! We met Mel when we went to the synagogue the day before their wedding to set up the photo booth, and she went straight to work helping us out. As we were leaving the building, I turned to Daniel and said, “We got lucky. She’s a perfect bride for us!”
And that was only further confirmed the next day. Melanie and Stephen trekked through the snow in the freezing cold (seriously, you don’t know what cold is unless you live in Canada) for a few portraits and never complained. It was such a pleasure to spend the day with them and I am so happy to have had the opportunity to be a “photographer slash bridesmaid extraordinaire,” as Mel dubbed me!
