Cope & Tara | day after (or 5+ years)
I believe it was January when I offered a free “day after” session. I was going STIR CRAZY to shoot something. At first, I was enjoying the start of the new year when folks are settling down with all their new Christmas toys (and bills). Suddenly I thought I would go crazy if I didn’t shoot SOMETHING. SOMEONE. ANYONE. with my camera, of course. And since I love brides and grooms with all my heart, I decided to offer a free Day After shoot. Day After shoots are for the couple that:
a) doesn’t want to take time out of their wedding day for portraits
b) wants more than 15 minutes of portraits from their wedding day
c) wasn’t in love with their portraits from their wedding day
Sometimes this couple got married the day before. Literally. Especially on DESTINATION weddings. You HAVE to have more than 15 minutes of portrait time on destination weddings. duh. Sometimes its the week after the honeymoon, sometimes its 6 months later and in Tara & Cope’s sessions, 5 years later.
Here is an exerpt from the email that assured me I had to pick Cope and Tara:
“After 5 years of marriage, 2 over seas deployments, and 1 amazing little boy, we’re still smiling and very much in love, maybe even more so. I still fit into my white wedding dress and Cope can proudly sport his dress blue uniform. It would mean a lot to say thank you to the man that loves me and how proud I am of him for going to war and coming back home to us SAFELY after so long.”
Here are a few sneak peeks from Cope and Tara’s “day after” session!
