If you scroll down a few blog entries, you can see thatÂ I had shot a few engagement photos of Melissa and Erik this past fall up in Brainerd. The few months between that shoot and their wedding two weekends ago have just flown by for me to say the least.Â Anyways. . .Â On the 17th January, I had the pleasure of escaping to the north woods to shoot their wedding.Â Melissa must have done a lot of planning, because everything was really thought out and gorgeous.Â They had rented a cabin to relax in and this was no ordinary cabin… it was pretty much the coolest cabin I have ever been in.Â We shot a bunch of photosÂ and spent a fair amount of time playing around there.Â Since Rachel was very pregnant and two weeks away from our due date, she decided to sit this one out.Â So I called in my friend Robby McCabe to give me a hand.Â We drove up Friday night and crashed a hotel in the area so we’d have a good nights sleep and a fresh start to the day.Â We grabbed a quick bite to eat and were settling in for the night when I came to the sudden realization that I forgot my shoes at home…200 miles away.Â I look at the clock and it was 10 minutes past when all the stores close…hmmm (I was actually freaking out since all I had were bright white running shoes).Â About 15 minutes into my freakout, I get a call from Erik saying that the timeline was going to be bumped back a bit in the morning and not to come at 7:30am like I was planning.Â Talk about Awesome!!!. So I had plenty of time to get some fancy new shoes and get over there without missing a shot.Â Nothing like a little drama to keep you up at night. I can bet that I will never forget my shoes from this day forward.
I have put together a fun slideshow of their day, so check it out!!
