When Athena first inquired about her upcoming wedding, she had less than one month to plan her wedding with Boon. There was a last minute opening at Erickson's Farm in Isanti, Minnesota and they were lucky enough to snag the date; now they were in a whirlwind deciding on a photographer. Shortly after a few days of messaging back and forth, Athena decided that our consultation went well, so she and Boon would like to move forward with me. Luckily, all the interning with a well seasoned photographer and taking on some amazing roles as a wedding second shooter for 'the big day' paid off. I was able to create a seamless timeline, drafting the most important details that needed to be captured that day, all the way down to how I can advocate for her and Boon on their special day; it was my time to apply everything I have learned from all of these amazing photographers and really put my skills to work. If I said wedding days are easy, I'd be lying. BUT I certainly wanted to make sure my bride was taken care of, and if that meant me holding her dress, reassuring her that everything is alright, or even making sure I ran the little errands for her, I would do it. I give her, Boon and their parents a huge applause for pulling their wedding off. It was a beautiful day to celebrate their love, and it was evident with all of the families that played a role in it. Many traveled even as far as France to join them. If this wasn't the first, it was certainly one of the very limited American wedding experiences and I am so glad I was able to play a small role in it. Congratulations, you two! You did it!
