At our wedding 6.5 years ago, my brother and college roommate sang “Today” by Joshua Radin. Its soft acoustic rhythms and sweet words still perfectly capture every feeling I ever felt on my own wedding day.
You can dry your eyes
Perfect shadows align
This is the day I make you mine
After shooting so many weddings, it’s easy to fall into a routine. Pull on a black dress, pack a lunch, grab our gear, and 8 hours later come home with tired feet and full memory cards. But photographing weddings demands much more than memorized motions and techniques.
But you are the one
I’ve been waiting for today
And here comes the sun
That’s been baiting on today
Shooting with Greg on a wedding day is one of my favorite things. I love being able to relive my own wedding day through the varying aesthetics of other weddings. Whether it’s a classic ballroom wedding with towering centerpieces, or an intimate gathering at a local restaurant, witnessing two people vow a lifetime together, always brings me closer to Greg. It often catches me off guard, but there is always at least one moment in every wedding day that reminds me of all the hopes, dreams, fears, and aspirations I held tightly to on my own wedding day. To have my husband next to me while we are photographing a wedding doesn’t just help me be in two places at once, it constantly reminds me of how special a wedding day truly is and how lucky I am to be married to such a wonderful man.
You looked right through me
When there was no one else
I sat beside beside you and became myself
Linee and Travis’s wedding encapsulated all of the intimate and personal details that create a day to remember forever. These two have found their better halves, and together they are a lovely couple and kind parents as well.
Their wedding was the first we had shot at Ashton Hill, one of the area’s newest wedding venues. With lots of natural light and everything bathed in white, it’s quite a photographer’s dream venue.
