Day 1228 – Three Years Ago, I Never Thought It Would Work Out

This time three years ago, Bret and I were driving home from our first wedding rehearsal. I had asked him to help me out with a wedding because my brother (previous second shooter) couldn’t make it. Looking back, I have to laugh at myself and how I reacted…but…here goes.

We photographed the rehearsal. Got a few nice shots. I felt ready to go for the wedding and we headed to the car to make our way to the rehearsal dinner. Well….Bret and I got into a “discussion” about a few things….he wanted to ask a few more questions of the pastor….and I got upset…I look back and just shake my head at 2009 Jennilyn….I mean, come on dude, it was his first wedding! Anyways, we went back in so he could ask a few more things. And then, there was a heated “discussion” on the drive to the rehearsal dinner and it was suggested that maybe this wasn’t such a good idea. Thankfully, I NEEDED Bret to work for me the next day. I don’t remember if we were still “discussing” things as we drove to the girl’s getting ready….but I do remember when we were photographing the ceremony. During the vows, my husband of 133 days looked over at me across the church, mouthed “I love you” and blew me a kiss. During the reception, I saw something AWESOME happening on the other side of the room, but I just didn’t think I’d make it….as I was struggling though the crowd, I see Bret’s flash shine and my heart smiled. Ever since that day, we haven’t had another “discussion.” 🙂

So, three years later, I am SO glad that it worked out…us working together….he has made me a better business owner, photographer and boss. I am so grateful.

He also takes me out for ice cream!
