James and Randa’s Asbury Wedding
So I made it mostly through proofing James and Randa’s images before I completely lost it. That is a side effect of being so close to your clients… although you give them a gift of photography, they are forever emblazoned in your heart. I enjoy all of my clients. I have fun with all of my clients. I say goodbye to many of my clients knowing that it may be a long time before we see each other again as they move on with their lives, out of state, to bigger and better things. But every now and then a client wanders into is divinely placed in your life. You know that they are there for a reason and you feel lucky and blessed by their friendship. James and Randa are one of those. Those people who leave a footprint on your heart and you know you will never be the same.
I watched as their wedding ceremony was as much about worship as it was about them. It was as much about friends and family as it was about them. These two are the single most selfless people I have known in a very long time and in proofing their photos, in seeing the love and light inside them, they make me want to be a better person.
I am sure they never set out on their journey to plan a wedding thinking “I think we’ll go change some lives today” but … for such a time as this… we were given the privilege of spending their wedding day with them. We were the lucky ones.
Congratulations James and Randa. I know that God has a truly “beautiful ending” for each of you.
