What Nicole wants, Nicole gets.
I remember getting a phone call earlier this year during a time I wasn’t even thinking about upcoming weddings, only end of the year and next year weddings. An enthusiastic and energetic lady was on the other end of the phone telling me, not asking, but TELLING me that I was going to be available for her wedding this year. She was engaged with an upcoming wedding, date was set, and she was going to make sure that she had me for her memories. She spoke with such adamancy that I couldn’t even fathom any typical DJ remark to say to this, only checked my calendar, confirmed that I was available, began the process. And it was no surprise when she began to tell me that I would capture her engagements as well. Of course I tried to fight back, I’m in control of this, I have a plan for that, but that was irrelevant. Her mind was already made up.
I hung up the phone wondering what the hell just happened…
No one talks to me like that. I’m the one always in control and telling people what will or won’t be. Yet here I acquiesced to her whims without hesitation. Just who was this new Prince Photography Bride that was running the show? And upon meeting her and Ray, I was not disappointed as they both lived up to expectations.
We met at City Park in New Orleans for their engagement session. On what couldn’t have been a more beautiful spring day, it was overshadowed by the beauty of these two. Through all the demands and desires she had, when it came to photos, her requests were actually quite easy: keep it simple, but make it memorable.
And the love they showed towards each other made my job easier.
I didn’t have to do much, other than just being me. They are naturally in love. And they know how to have fun together. I remember engaging with both of them as if we had all been friends for an extended period of time. Then it hit me, we are like minded, that’s why I adapted to her so well. When you know what you want, you don’t wait for it to come to you, you go out and get it without exception. You don’t allow doubt to set in, you don’t allow obstacles to hinder. You secure your desires.
But I will say this…Ray is in for one hell of a ride with this one. But I’m certain he already knows that
