It was 12:30 am on, Saturday, Sept. 17th (which is also Brooke Prince's birthday), when I received a text from Pam, "Are you coming?" I was driving back to Philadelphia from Cape May after second shooting a 12 hour wedding with Mike Allebach. Pam has been like family since before I could remember. Her son, Tani, who is only a year younger than me, was having an engagement party in Baltimore the next day and Pam wanted to hire me to photograph the festivities.
First off, I cannot believe Tani is getting married! And secondly, I WOULDN'T MISS IT FOR THE WORLD. I mean, it was Tani! I used to drive him to school every day when I was 17 (sorry for making us late almost every day Tan!). I remember shooting baskets with him at like age 7. It was basically a no brainer...
So after working two weddings Friday and Saturday, the next day, I found myself driving down I95 from Philadelphia to Baltimore in the rain to Tani and Jordy's engagement party. When I walked in, I not only saw a crowded room filled with familiar faces, but I also saw the amazing buffet of treats Pam had put together. It was truly a celebration and I felt honored to be a part of it.
The weather cleared up just in time for everyone to circle around the backyard and listen to some heartfelt, amazing and hilarious (thanks Ma'ayan) speeches. It was pretty cool to see Tani and Jordy together. I cannot wait for them to have a beautiful, happy and plentiful life together.
Thank you Pam. Thank you Tani. and thank you Baltimore community for being so supportive of my dreams.
Till next time,
