Johnny & Emily | 9.28.13

I stepped on the groom’s fathers fly rod.

It was a special Scott fly rod that his father had for years. It was one of those moments when you just have no words, and you definitely can’t take it back. HA! I was so embarrassed, and didn’t know what to do or say.


It was at the end of the evening, and I asked Johnny and Emily to come down to the river for a few shots of just them. It was a fly fishing inspired wedding so it just seemed like the thing to do. We made it through all of the images, and then started walking back to the reception. I stopped them on the bride because the ‘light was just right!’ Johnny set the fly rod down on the bridge…and I got them all positioned correctly for that special shot…stepped back and CRUNCH. Luckily, the company does replace broken fly rods. Also I have to say that they were so gracious with me… so gracious and understanding and it is just the way they are…very laid back…

I also will never…under any circumstances not be aware of where the fly rod is if I ever have a couple want shots with their fly rod! Yikes!!! I am not a fly fisherwoman, and did not realize that is something to be very aware of when using a fly rod. My fly fisherman husband informed me of that!

I hope you enjoy this sneak peek into Johnny and Emily’s special day. They are such an easy going, sweet couple.


oh and this is the shot I was after on the bridge when that horrible CRUNCH happened…
