It’s funny how your past manifests itself in your future in good ways and bad. I’ve been SO incredibly fortunate to have great friends that I’ve known for years that believe in me. What is really amazing to me is the number of people who think about me so soon even when we haven’t talked in years.
At one point I was a shy 14 year old in a new town, about to start high school, stuck going through marching band camp in the middle of the Georgia summer. Uncomfortable was definitely a word that could be used to describe my life at that point. Luckily the South Gwinnett Marching Band of 2004-2005 was full of great people. Great people like Morgan Phalan who helped make high school look like a less scary place by just being a smiling face or stopping to say ‘Hi!’. Morgan is a kind of genuine person who everyone needs in their life. We never were especially close friends in or out of marching band and she moved from the school district during my second year but she was always a friendly face. So when a few months ago Morgan told me she was getting married and wanted to meet about me possibly being the photographer for her wedding, I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of her day and return the favor of sorts.
Since then I’ve had the chance to get to know and spend time with both Morgan and Erik’s families while planning every minute of their wedding. They have an amazing supporting cast of parents, siblings, and friends that will guide them through life together. I’m so excited to share these photos and I look forward to spending more time with Mr. & Mrs. Krause in the future!
