No matter how many weddings I shoot, every wedding-day morning, I wake up feeling the weight of responsibility to capture the depth of emotion and love that is manifest on that wedding day. No pressure, really. It’s only the MOST beautiful, important, most anticipated [most expensive] day in their lives. Our work is their only physical capturing of their day that will help preserve in their memories the perfection of it all. It may be strange, but I LOVE that feeling; It’s that feeling that drives me to capture the moments I do. I would be scared if I didn’t have it because it would mean that I’m not giving the wedding the importance that it deserves. I am constantly filled with gratitude for the bride and grooms who allow and trust me to document their day through my lens.
Immediately upon meeting Natalie and Evan, I witnessed in them a genuine and gentle devotion and adoration for each other. More than usual, I knew they were an incredible couple… that they shared an endless love… that their wedding day was going to be an incredible day. And incredible it was. Photographing Natalie and Evan’s wedding was a pure delight.
Natalie and Evan chose to do a first look. I absolutely LOVE when a bride and groom choose to see each other before the ceremony. It paves the way for some beautiful moments and images.
I LOVE Natalie’s bouquet created by John Carpenter’s Flowers.
Umm…seriously!? Must you guys look so awesome in front of the camera?
At the end of the night, Natalie, Evan and I snuck out to take just a few last pictures before the sun went down. I am so so glad we did.
