I admit it: I love doing intimate weddings. Not all photographers do, but I do. What’s not to like? I get to interact with these couples on levels that are not possible with the bigger weddings, and consequently, I get to help create, and then capture, some really special moments.
I knew Gordon was special when we spoke over the phone. What I didn’t know was just how special. He’s HUGE! At least in my book he is. I’m 5’1″ on a good day. Gordon told me he was 6’4″. He reminded me of John Wayne. I don’t know how powerful a presence John Wayne was in person, but on the screen he was powerful. Gordon was like that, and I soon found he had a sense of humor too, and a love for his new bride, Sairie, that showed in his attentiveness to her. It was a joy to photograph this couple!
