Meant-to-be that Barb is in my life.
Barb is our incredible associate photographer here at Tara McMullen Photography.
This elfin spirit came into my little world nearly three years ago, and neither my personal or professional life will ever been the same.
Barb was my second shooter for a long time, and then over the last year has been taking on more and more of her own couples. She has photographed some absolutely stunning weddings as the primary photographer.
It’s about darn time that you were properly introduced to the woman who has become my Girl Friday, my little sister, one of my best friends.
If Barb is photographing your wedding this year or next :: you’ve made a wonderful choice.
There are a million reasons why I love this woman.
Her spirit is unending…even when her heart is a tiny bit broken.
She is the most soft-hearted romantic I’ve ever known.
She will come home from weddings, and send me text messages about what she loved most about our couples’ speeches to one another.
She will scour the internet for that poem you included in your toast to your mother.
She will listen to Bon Iver and cry while she looks through your images.
This woman is the real deal. She is a giant heart. Now that you’ve formally met my beloved Barb, I hope that you will reach out to her at our weddings together, and give her a high-five at weddings that she’s shooting without me.
If you really want to win her over, talk to her about the little things to do to make your husband/wife/fiancee/fiance/boyfriend/girlfriend/partner feels oh-so-special.
You’ll have a friend for life.
I have a friend for life.
I love you, Babs. I’m so lucky to have you on my team.
