David, Des & I just finished wrapping up a beautiful wedding for my good friends Carol & Yejun. We were at HNL waiting to board our flight back to good ol chi city and David’s phone rings. It was Jon calling – David hands the phone over to me and in my head it went somewhat like this:
Remo: Henry, I need a photographer for my wedding.
Henry: Hey Remo! Oh shoot – did something happen? When’s your wedding?
Remo: It’s coming up soon. August 1.
Henry: … (crap. is he asking me to photograph his wedding? i’m awful at photos!) Wow. That’s in a couple weeks!
Remo: Are you free? Can you photograph my wedding?
Henry: Uh… you know I don’t really do photos right? I’m horrible at posing people!
Remo: Don’t worry about it – we love your films / stills.
Henry: I’d have to think it over.
A long flight back to the chi and it was decided. There’s no way I can leave my friend hanging with a couple weeks left. He wouldn’t have called unless there were any other options. It was such a great decision on my part! Remo & Spencer’s friends and family are such a loving bunch. I spent the weekend with them and we were surrounded by great food and joyous laughter. It was such a relief to know that Remo trusted me with the task. That guy is such an encouragement, even calling me after the wedding expressing his thanks and how comfortable him & spencer were on the day of.
On that note, I’ll probably never photograph another wedding. Enjoy! Love you both Remo & Spencer! I’m definitely swinging by if I’m ever in Ohio… hahaha
Oh – and I couldn’t have done it without David & Des being guests at the wedding! SO HELPFUL!
