Cliff and Angelina :: Married

Seven years ago in San Antonio, Texas I met up with a group of girls at a photography workshop. Most of the girls had already been there a week for the first course. I joined in that second week. I was shy and nervous and felt like a bit of an outsider crashing the party. I remember getting into the van and meeting a very outgoing girl who introduced herself as "Babbs". She talked a lot, made me feel more than welcome and then we realized we were both from GA! 

That was the start of a very special friendship. Babb's (aka Angelina) and I became friends, and have had multiple coffee dates, photo shoots, brain storming sessions, and have grown our photography businesses over the years. 

We would meet up and I would be over my photography business, frustrated. She would be all inspired and share all of her new ideas and tell me to get back at it. The next time we would meet, I would be the one full of ideas and she would be discouraged about her business. That's pretty much how it went. One friend encouraging and inspiring the other, telling each other to get back at it! You need those kinds of friends. 

Kira Thorman was also at that same workshop in San Antonio. We all quickly became friends, only she was from Colorado, not Georgia. That didn't stop her. Every year she would fly down to Georgia for a visit. She ended up marrying a Georgia boy, so we still get to see each other! She was the head photographer for Babb's wedding! 

What a pleasure it was to help photograph this sweet friend's wedding! 

Love these girls so much! It's a treat for us to all be together!
