There's no better feeling than booking way in advance. Set it aside and don't worry about it. Jackclyn booked me nearly two years ahead of time. Of course I knew less about what I was doing back when she booked me, but that's probably better for them since my prices were different but my services got better. Win win.
I had never met either one of these people I was shooting. I'm guessing they found me on Craiglist when I still advertised through there. We had only reached out via email and text. I kind of like that. There are no preconceived notions. There are no positive or negative thoughts about how a person looks. As much as I hate to judge people based on how they look - it is inevitable and you can't really avoid doing it, for the better or worse. So like many weddings I've show up to, I ask the most busy-looking person, "Can you show me to the bride?" Deep upstairs in the Charlotte Museum of History, Jackclyn stepped out in a beautiful red dress - glowing with excitement and beaming with pure stoke. It was only a few minutes later when I met Duncan, also bubbling over with smiles and laughter. I knew this was going to be a good one. It was. They were an incredibly awesome couple with a great sense of humor (see pictures below). Beautiful Chinese decorations and wonderful bright colors everywhere made for a great atmosphere.
