Years before I began my volunteer work as the Fire Department Photographer for Suisun City Fire Department I was already working with many of the staff for their life events. Family portraits and Weddings were the most common ways I got to know many of the real life heroes of the community. Being part of a fire department isn't just a job or a way to give back to the community for many firefighters, its a way of life that doesn't end when their shift is over. This culture is embedded in all aspects of everyday life for these men and women, so when a firefighter gets married you better believe there will be some type of fire apparatus or mention of their service in the wedding details. For Gayle and Shaun the fire department family was well represented at their wedding. The ladder truck was used for photos, the fire chief was the officiant, helmets lined the aisle and an axe was used to cut the cake. All of this made for unique picture opportunities and a very fun wedding overall.
