I've enjoyed photographing weddings at the beautiful and rustic Byron Colby Barn in Graylake. So I was really excited when Becca and Sam contacted me to photograph their wedding at the Byron Colby Barn. I love how we're all super-connected because of the internet (I know that sounds a little geeky). But without that on-line connection we all share I would never have met Becca and Sam. You see Becca and Sam live in China and found my blog by searching, as I imagine most brides do. She liked my work (thank you very much) and we set up a meeting via Skype. I would loved to have traveled to China for out meeting, but that wasn't going to happen (unfortunately).
The ceremony took place at the Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake. I had photographed a wedding there before, so I felt that very comfortable being there. The range of emotions was beautiful, from laughter to tears, to joy. I know many people expect those type of emotions at weddings, but it's always so intense when you're experiencing them right as they happen. It's really quite amazing.
Thank you again Becca and Sam! It was an honor to serve you on your beautiful wedding. I hope China is treating you guys well - Zài jiàn!
