Sara was on a mission trip with her church in New Zealand. She had no idea that on this trip she would meet the man she would marry. Jonathon had no idea when he met this sweet girl from the United States that she would be his wife. But after spending even a short amount of time together, they both knew they couldn’t live without one another. So after traveling half way around the globe and moving to a new country, Jonathon married the woman of his dreams.
Don’t you hate those people who can slap some mascara on and look like a million bucks. Well, it’s impossible to hate Sara, but it is feasible that you’d be jealous if you watched her get ready and how great she looks in the 2 minutes it took her.
This has no significance. I just saw it at the salon and found it funny.
I have to give one HUGE shout out to our assistant Dawn. She managed to catch some shots that blew me away. Many of these shots are hers, including this one which I find beautiful.
She also took this one of Jonathon that I find striking. I could listen to Jonathon and his family talk all day long. I love me an accent. Dawn asked me “Do you think they have any idea how cool they are sounding” and I had to laugh because I was wondering at the same time if they realized how stupid I was sounding.
Uh yes, this photo is sexy in my opinion. Thanks for asking.
I normally go a little OCD on bride’s shoes, but THIS time I think I was a little bizzerk over the boy’s. These boys brought on the swagger with these HOT shoes. (I’ve been looking for an excuse to use the word swagger by the way)
Some people like shots like this and request it, however I DON’T like posing this type of shot. But when it happens naturally it gets the right look. Way to go Dawn for capturing that split second wind gust!
OK, some people will feel me on this – some won’t. But this is my favorite shot of the day. Jonathon had 2 groomsmen and had he had more – this shot would have never looked this cool. But I had those bridesmaids and the bride go chat in that “pocket” and man did it turn out awesome. I hope you like it too!
For Maori (indigenous New Zealander’s) the Koru (swirl) is a symbol of new life. When two Koru are combined it symbolizes the joining of two people or cultures. (P.S. I’ll never tell how I got the swirl light on the table, but lets just say I am super crafty)
Jonathon – although you are loosing the beautiful landscape of New Zealand (seriously – from New Zealand to Illinois – it MUST be love) you are gaining much more in life. The beauty of your love is more beautiful than any country side. I’m so happy to see two people so deeply in love. It was an honor to capture it!
