Some couples have a love that everyone sees. That is so vibrant, that has such a spark that it can’t be missed. Chelsey & Derek have that kind of love. He adores her with every part of his soul. When he looks at her, when he kisses the very tip of her nose, when he grabs her and tells her he loves her for no reason at all. The way she respects him, is loyal to him, the way she can’t wait to grow old with him by her side. This is visible by just being around this couple. They are dynamic and cheerful by themselves, but together they have something magical. And their wedding day was polished, and radiant just like them! Enjoy Chelsey & Derek’s wedding day!!!
To say it was fireworks right from the start would be… partly true. Officially the first time they crossed paths she didn’t even notice him. But he definitely noticed her! On the way to watch the fireworks Alex shouted “Shot gun” and got into Aubrey’s cousin’s car. She couldn’t figure this forward guy out, but by the time the fireworks show started, so did a little bit of interest! They quickly became best friends, and eventually fell in love.
Lindsay & Tyler are that sweet young couple, fresh and wide-eyed, happily in love. They are best friends and while it’s easy to see how in love they are – it’s even more easy to imagine them in love even at 90. The faces may change and their bodies will age, but the way he makes her smile, or the way he looks at her and you can see how taken he is with her will never fade. It’s a timeless love that legends are made of, and on 6/16/12 Lindsay walked down the aisle towards her future. Enjoy the beginning of a Happily Ever After…
It’s a fabulous thing when a stranger chooses you to capture your wedding day. The only thing better, is when a friend asks you. It’s such an honor when one of your most favorite people on the planet trusts you to be a part of such a special day. Knowing the couple’s relationship, getting the “We’re engaged!!!!” text, first hand watching the planning, texting and emailing about ideas, watching your friends dreams become reality – and then being there to capture it all is absolutely priceless. With this privilege comes a significant amount of categorical, unequivocal, irrefutable fear. We want to do an amazing job for every single couple we photograph, but the nature of photographing friends is a unique experience that brings a level of self critique and over analyzing. Representing their love story with photos, providing them with their legacy to show their children, grandchildren, etc. is always our job – but for friends it is also our gift, so it has to be extra special. As special as this amazing couple is to us! Enjoy the beautiful day of Amy & Todd!!
Christine and Juan were so excited about this day – it was impossible to not feel excited by osmosis. The ceremony and reception was packed with people and there wasn’t a person there who isn’t crazy about this couple. To know them is to love them. Their happiness and love is contagious. It felt like every single person there was someone that they cared for immensely. Like they could have had a wedding party of 275 people if it was feasible. (Seriously – thank you for not doing that) You could say how blessed the couple is to have so many people who love them and so many who would drop everything to help them out if they needed. We would say how blessed all those people are. Because they have friends as true, as inspiring, as loving as Christine and Juan. Their character is difficult to find, and just like their love and commitment to one another – when you find it, you never want to let it go.
Enjoy Christine and Juan’s wedding day!!!
