This is so Brandon and I!
After all of these years of marriage he knows me so well. We spend almost every hour of every day together. When he is hungry I had better eat too because we are so in synch that I’m probably hungry too but just don’t know it yet.
Before most big shoots we stop for food. I go with vegetables or nothing trying to be healthy because I probably just had a smoothie at home. My smoothies usually consist of chia seeds, beets, wheat germ, green apple, lemon, an egg and sometimes coconut water. He orders sometimes healthy but mostly whatever he wants. When I met him he use to eat biscuits and gravy. (Oh my gosh, who does that?!) I put up such a fuss over that I think he has only eaten that twice since we met unless he’s a closet biscuits and gravy eater which our dog would have figured out by now and ratted on him to me.
I’m totally ok with my order until I see him yummy, greasy, salty, comfort food sitting just inches away from mine. He knows he cannot leave me alone with his food. He’s not super happy about sharing food but will always give in to me. What would I do without him? If I say I’m not hungry he orders food for me anyway and I’m always thankful he does. I’m blessed to have found someone who takes such good care of me. Sometimes when you’re on the road you just need calories. Now I just need to get him to drink my smoothies.
Here’s our typical wedding day meals:
breakfast: big glass of water & protein and carb combo ie. egg, berries or banana and toast, peanut butter and toast, oatmeal and an egg and definitely coffee but not too much because we can’t burn out right away.
lunch on the way to the wedding: hamburger with salad or fries
in the parking lot while gearing up: coconut water 16oz each, 2 hour energy shot
after ceremony: another big glass of water
dinner: generously offered by client: usually salmon, vegetables and potatoes but not very much because we take short dinner breaks and need to be able to keep moving.
once home: cereal or yogurt and more water
Be sure to treat yourself well while shooting a wedding. Eat balanced meals and/or snacks, hydrate, bring band aids for feet, keep a close eye on the schedule so you know when you can take small rests and be sure to smile as often as possible because it makes you feel good and oh my gosh, how good does it feel to be in our element doing what we love?!
