In True Caveman Style by Marny Barnes


There is actually a story behind this shot. We all are aware that brides make the rules…lol. They make lists and they delegate lists…and they are NOT willing to hear from hubby…….
“UUUHHHH? Was I supposed to do that today???”

Meet Cory and Katherine. Katherine makes lists..and then makes a list of the lists…and Cory recieves a list and does what he needs to to make sure that later that night…Katherine is “in the mood” (WINK) This is the natural order of wedding preparations.

And then you see…along comes the bossy photographer that gives a very direct order to “Go Caveman” and toss his new bride over his shoulder like the old days…and carry her off.

What does the bride say? “Ohhhh no Cory…don’t even think about it!!” He hesitates..looks at me…I grin and happily inform her that for the next two hours I AM THE BOSS….lolol.

Cory lights up like a christmas tree because he now gets to do something she doesn’t want to do and she has no say. With a cheeky grin he hauls her over his shoulder like a sac of potatoes…and while she doesn’t want to laugh…or admit it…SHE LIKES IT…just a little.

And here is where the happy accident happens…lo and behold as she flings her hair out of her face and I am busily clicking away…I caught this. The truth is I had no idea till last night that I had this perfect shot.

My fave of the bunch…love love love her emotion and gut laugh and DAMN her hair is rockin.

HOW YA LOVE ME NOW KATIE?? Big fat kiss to you both and thanks so much for letting me play!!!!!!!!!!!! I love to play!!!!!!!!

Dreamer, mother, wife, friend and most of all…a captive audience of moments and memories…vivid, beautiful and breath taking…through the lens of my camera.
