Jessica + Tom's Wedding. Friedman Farms.

Welcome, Mike.  Turn here. I remember the phone call last year with Jessica.  I remember the 1 or 2 hr conversation we had about weddings.  About how the location a couple chooses should represent them.  About photography.  I love when those phone calls stick in your mind.  You know its going to be good.

Fast forward to their engagement.  This is when you know you are in the boonies:

Welcome, Mike.  Turn Here.

Yup.  Jessica lives on an unnamed state rural route.  No name.  Just  a number.  So they made me a fancy sign for me and I knew, right there when I saw it, this was going to be good.

Through the woods over rocks, mud, branches and finally you are at her house.

But this time it was for a wedding.  At least I knew where to go.  I didn't need a sign the second time although I secretly wanted it to be there.

Besides the minor car issue I had where my assistant and I had to rig up a quick fix - which worked well by the way - the day went on without a hitch.  The weather was perfect.  The people were perfect. The venue looked perfect.  All was good.

Jessica married Tom.  Life is good.

Thanks, as always, to my trust assistant George for snagging some shots of the guys.
