I don’t think that there is a greater honor for a wedding photographer than to shoot a fellow wedding photographer’s actual wedding! Kim Fox is a talented Southern California wedding photographer whose work we greatly admire. Adi and I felt privileged to be a part of this magical weekend in Desert Hot Springs and Joshua Tree celebrating Kim and Jimmy’s wedding. Kim was so into her wedding photos that she put Adi and I up in the adjoining room to her honeymoon suite! All photos, all the time. There were no limits, no lists, no restrictions. Just pure photo fabulousness. In fact, we even shot her pre-wedding “boudoir”Â on our own bed!
An intimate affair with about 35 close friends and relatives, we took over the Beat Hotel and its nearby dessert roads and made them into our own little wedding fashion shoot location. The ceremony was “experienced”Â in between the mountains and the Joshua Trees. Poetry was recited, songs were sung, guitars were strummed, and then, the glass was broken under the chuppah and we all danced the horah under the setting sun. Kim is such a dear friend and she and Jimmy make a perfect set.
After the wedding was over, Kim said to me, “I get it now. I understand how a bride feels on her wedding day.”Â
I personally agree. My own wedding day four years ago was the happiest day of my entire life.
