im going to keep reblogging this until it isn’t cute anymore
i wanna know you better than the back of my hand, and what keeps you up at 2am.
i wanna know what song has been stuck in your head, and how you’d look in my bed.
i wanna know what words are on the tip of your tongue, and hear about your dreams, even when you have none.
i wanna know what brings tears to your eyes, and what your face would look like if i kissed the inside of your thighs.
i wanna know how you like your coffee in the morning, and how cute you look when you’re snoring.
i wanna know you better.
Last night I had the privilege of being the photographer for this wonderful couple. They’re some mutual friends of mine and I hadn’t met them prior to their interest in me doing their wedding.
She was beautiful. I was with her while putting her makeup on and doing her hair. She looked stunning. I found her crying in the bathroom a few times while getting ready. She put on her white dress and had the biggest smile on her face.
We met the groom to be at a field. They wanted some “first look” shots before the wedding. He had his eyes closed underneath an aspen when we arrived. He was smiling and his hands were obviously shaking. She walked softly through the grass to him as I raised my camera, poised to capture this moment.
She took a deep breath and told him to open his eyes. My shutter started clicking. I can’t explain that very moment… as an observer. It was wondeful.
Back tracking some…. a few weeks ago I ran into the groom to be and he started telling me how he has waited for this girl… they both saved themselves for each other. They are both fairly new believers but embraced that they would live In separate areas and not be physical.
The wedding was beautiful. Stressful for me because I was running around. But still beautiful.
Then came their first dance.
They took the dance floor as everyone silenced and fixed their eyes upon them.
As the photographer, I was closer than most everyone else and they were talking to each other over the music. I couldn’t make out what they were saying but I wasn’t trying.
I poised and waiting for a good shot when I heard him say “I’m so glad I waited for you”. I snapped a picture of her face right when he said that. In my whole life I have never seen a more honored look than the one she gave him. I was so thankful I captured that.
It was encouraging. The whole thing. It was beautiful and special. I feel like that sleeping around is so common, especially where I live. It was wondeful to see two people who waited for each other.
