Of course, all of my clients mean the world to me, but this Conway Firehall wedding is an especially dear occasion to me. Belinda and her family have been dear friends of mine since I was a kid! Belinda, her two daughters, and her son moved across the street from me. I became very close with their family. I have always known that Belinda was a wonderful mom. In fact, I recently photographed her kids and granddaughter for her as a surprise Christmas gift from all of them. So, this was a very meaningful day for me to watch her get married!
Her new husband Robert is the chief of the Conway Fire Department. So not only were they married at the Firehall, but we also had the chance to photograph everyone with a firetruck! This was such a fun element to add to their portraits!
The day began with a sweet first look between Robert and Belinda. They wanted their family present, so everyone gathered as they saw each other as bride and groom for the first time! It was a sweet and tender moment. Afterwards, we took bridal party pictures and of course, romantic portraits of just the two of them. Belinda’s daughters, who were both some of my best friends growing up, were her bridesmaids. Andrew, her son, was not only a groomsmen, but he also walked Belinda down the aisle. Their flower girl is Belinda’s granddaughter, and the ring bearer was Robert’s grandson. So it was truly a family affair! Levi was just adorable watching his grandpa taking pictures. So of course we grabbed a few shots of him and his granddad with the firetruck.
It was so wonderful to see their whole family come together in celebration of Robert and Belinda. Everyone had a part in making their day so special. During the reception, I was able to finish taking photos and just enjoy myself with my wonderful, life-long friends. I am I am so happy that Belinda has found her person in Robert. He was so much fun throughout the day and I could tell how much he genuinely loves her. This is truly the kind of man she and her family deserve!
