Fly Girl

Before I begin, I wanted to first say that this is not my photograph. This was taken by a good friend and master photographer named Andrew Graham Todes ( I will continue with saying that this was the proudest day of my life. After spending almost a year debating on venues and changing plans my girlfriend at the time decided, forget it lets just get married at the justice of the peace. The worst part was battling with clashing families, almost having to clarify the fact that this was our day and not theirs. However, I digress. 

Our plan was simple, invite close family to the ceremony then shoot off to beach to get pictures taken at the Wildwood air museum. Upon arriving to the museum, I was fascinated with the location and amount of planes on display. We walked through the hanger doors and were greeted by the staff at the museum. As we began to explain our intentions a couple had overheard what we were saying and asked us if we wanted to take photos on their war bird. Overjoyed and astonished we immediately agreed. After boosting my wife up to the wing of the plane she made herself right at home inside the cockpit. This shot will be one of my all time favorite and memorable moments I have ever shared with my wife.

I've asked him if he wanted to awhile back. I think his current obligations are priority right now. I will share the feedback with him, maybe he will consider heading over to share his thoughts and knowledge. Ill link our old flickr account so you can see the rest of photo series that day.
