Sonora Engagement Photographer | Indigeny Engagement | Christine Dibble Photography
When I met Jen and Kevin to discuss photographing their upcoming wedding at the Black Oak Casino Resort in Tuolumne, everyone was happy and healthy. We set up a date for the Indigeny engagement shoot. And then somewhere in between, Kevin broke his foot. While it is more common these days to see broken bones placed in velcro casts, Kevin was the one rare case that actually needed the old fiberglass cast and no weight on it. But he did not want to postpone their session. He proved his love for Jen in a big way that day as he moved all over the property at Indigeny on crutches. It was partly cloudy, and I tried to use that cover to use spots that were not ideal at that time in full sun but were close and easily accessible to someone on crutches. And then we would get set up, ready to start snapping away, and the clouds would move. So Kevin covered a lot of miles on his arms. And he sat on the ground and stood up, and posed on one leg, and he went up little hills and over rough ground…all for the girl he loves. I am now even more excited to get to work with them on their wedding day because both of them should be fully mobile! But if Murphy’s Law does strike now that I have said that, at least I know they will just grit their teeth and smile through it for the sake of portraits!
