1,000 Miles Just to Meet Again | Family Photographer

It really is a small world!

I was contacted by a woman who was getting married in Hilton Head, a destination wedding! She had her wedding photographer, but was looking for someone to do a beach session with her entire family as a present to her mom.

I say, there is nothing better than the gift of portraits! They will last way longer than any flower bouquet!

So we talked, discussed what she wanted, etc. When she booked with me, I noticed her address….it was from my home town in Illinois!

What a small world.

As we started talking, I found out she was marrying a guy I knew from high school, that he son went to the same school I taught at, and his favorite teacher was one of my good friends!

Can you imagine? Traveling 1,000 miles just to have a home town photographer take your family portraits on the beaches of Hilton Head.

This was a real fun session, even with the wind gusts that are so common at the beach.
