Some days I can’t believe I get paid to do what I do. This wedding in September at the beautiful Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs was one of those days. Nisi and Jordan are actors from New York City who came back to Nisi’s home state to tie the knot. Nisi happens to be an actress in one of my favorite series on HBO, Boardwalk Empire. I was a bit starstruck, but that immediately subsided when I met Nisi. She’s such a calm and peaceful soul, she just puts everyone around her at ease. And Jordan exudes joy and energy. They make a great yin to each other’s yang, and they just glow when in each other’s presence. That’s a joy to capture. The wedding party and attendants were a small group, but each person had their particular “role” in this act of Nisi and Jordan’s life, including me. I remember talking to Nisi in the months before the wedding, and she was interviewing me to make sure that I was the person that would fit well into their cast. I was ecstatic to play the role.
I can’t wait to catch up with them again in the spring to take some head shots for them, and I might even catch Jordan playing the lead in Hamlet with the Arkansas Shakespeare Theater in Conway. You should too!
