In this industry, its easy to get caught up in the details. Believe me, I understand the appeal…every time I photograph a pair of Louboutins, my heart skips a beat, and every Reem Acra gown I’ve ever shot has taken my breath away a little. So when we arrived to Tracy’s grandmother’s house to find not one, but two ( 2! ) gorgeous Reem Acra gowns & 2 pair of fabulous shoes, I had a Rachel Zoe moment :) Tracy has impeccable taste & boy did she rock those 3 inch heels on her wedding day. As a gal who can’t even sport a 1/2 inch heel without breaking an ankle, I was impressed.

But here’s the thing about Tracy…her incredible style is only a tiny fraction of who she is. She’s one of the strongest women I’ve ever had in front of my lens. To see her with her daughter Aaliyah will make your heart melt. She’s an amazing mom & is so supportive of PJ’s pro basketball career. PJ brings out the kid in her & its obvious how much she adores him. Their first dance was a favorite moment of the day. PJ surprised Tracy by having the DJ cue their song right after they were announced as Mr & Mrs. It was a perfect PJ move….to remind us all that life is so much better with surprises. Tracy is a planner at heart, so as much as this went against her nature, her reaction was priceless. She loves PJ for who he truly is…surprises and all. There’s something so inspiring about that kind of unconditional love. I know these two have an exciting future ahead. Tracy has already emailed about baby pics in the future, so hopefully you’ll be seeing more of them…soon :)

Thanks to Tracy’s mom Diane for making us feel like family for the day…you guys are the best. Big hugs to you all.
