This building is the side of the once known Milton Theatre. It caught my eye immediately when we moved into town and this past May when I participated in the Coastal Plein Air event I knew I wanted to make it one of my stops. The entire competition was completely outside of the norm for me since I'm so used to photographing with people in my images, but I knew that I wanted to go outside of my comfort zone and the worst that could come out of it were some awesome new locations to take my clients. In order for me to compete the only time I could find was at sunrise each of the 4 days. So every morning I was up and out by 5am taking pictures in the open air and it was envigorating to feel...
Fast forward to this fall - I had never met Meredith before but I knew her Mom from town and when Meredith and Michael came to Milton to visit them and get their engagement pictures taken I couldn't help but notice how the light was glowing at my favorite spot. It was so different from from when I visited at sunrise but I just loved how the little ray of sunshine lit them up perfectly and how different the facade looked after only 6 months. It was such a great night hanging with the two of them, it's ashame an entire year is going to pass before we get to hang out again.
I got the call on Sunday for the following Saturday, it was supposed to be my first weekend off in three months but I trust MMD and their match making skills. It truly was the nicest evening for a backyard wedding put together in only 9 days (kudos to MMD!). And when Amanda's Mom told me that her Grandmother loved Butterlies we all know that she was there during the ceremony, it was hard to hold back the tears, it was magical and kismet and made me so happy that they had me there to be a part of it.
