When I first sat down with Nicole to talk about her wedding, she kind of offhandedly mentioned that her husband-to-be was a firefighter and it was possible there would be a firetruck at the reception, and if there was, could we do a few photos? Um, yeah! Honestly, I didn’t think a while lot about it until a few days before the wedding when we chatted again. It would be cool to have a firetruck to work with. It makes for a nice background and is definitely not something you get to work with every day.
But really, I didn’t expect a whole lot. I expected to grab a few shots really quickly before they headed into the reception. And maybe that’s what would have happened until Nicole said, “I’m am SOOOOOOO getting in the bucket on that thing.” Again, OK, that will be fun, thinking the bucket would stay on the ground.
Then everything changed as she and her husband Curt hopped in the bucket and started going up and up and up. There were a lot of great memories from the day, but if I tried to tell you that was not the highlight I’d totally be lying. It was so friggin’ cool. Thanks to Nicole and Curt for inviting us to be a part of their day and for giving us some great memories.
