I started the day off at Red Corral Ranch with Jim as he snacked on some food and waited for his groomsmen to arrive to start taking pictures. I could feel his anxiety and excitement. I had checked in with Betsy and told him how beautiful she was looking and he immediately starting tearing up. A little while later while taking some solo shots of Jim, I started talking about how he must be feeling and how great it was that he was going to be married within a few hours. Again, tears in his eyes. I knew that Jim seeing Betsy for the first time at the end of the aisle was going to be something special, and I definitely wasn’t wrong.
After all of the groomsmen and bridesmaids had entered in to the church, it was only Betsy left to come in through the doors. Watching Jim wait for her was one of the best parts of my job. He was SO ready for the doors to open. It literally felt like forever and I couldn’t take my eyes off of his reaction and the love that he had for her.. so obvious. He went from wanting to pull his hair out in anticipation to seeing her and literally gasping in to his hands. It was sincerely a moment that I will never forget.
