Beginnings. by Meg Keene There is something inexplicable wonderful, and also sometimes almost spooky, about having a photographer with an artistic sensibilities so close to your own. Particularly if, like me, you have a very specific and quirky visual sense… This morning, this wonderful package arrived in the post from Heather and Jon, of One Love Photo. How perfect is that? And yes, that’s a Nikki McClure card. Those delightfully packaged things are our DVDs of pictures, which means that wedding week is next week. *Our* wedding week. I wrote a sequence of small posts where I tried to capture a bit of each part of the wedding, right after we got back from our honeymoon. Next week I’ll be sharing the vignettes in chronological order. It’s bittersweet for me, sharing our wedding here. I’ve been writing about the process for so long that writing the final chapter is both hard and wonderful. When our friends looked at our wedding pictures this week, more than one of them said simply, “That was a very very good day.” And that may be the highest complement of all. For me, looking back to that beautiful August morning, it seems like a day of great richness that I want to hold close to my heart forever, but it also seems like the beginning of something even more better and more beautiful.
