Shooting weddings is my favorite. Sometimes we meet couples at the middle of their story. Sometimes we are lucky enough to know a lot of their story. Sometimes we’ve known them for years. I’ve known Jacob for years. Our families grew up at the same church and his sister Hannah has been a sweet friend. (We got to shoot her wedding 3 years ago). Knowing couples is awesome. And knowing that they “get it” makes it even more meaningful. I cried my eyes out when Hannah have her toast. She looked at her new sister and her brother and told them that she would fight and pray for their marriage until the day she dies. Marriage is hard but so rewarding and Jacob, Brittney, YOU CAN DO IT! I’m so stoked to see what the future holds. I love the way you care for each other and put each other first. It will carry you through. We love you guys!
Often at weddings I get this amazing feeling. I feel like my heart is screaming out “I want to be a part of this family!”. I already have an amazing family of my own but I think it’s so neat that there is something deep inside of me that just wants to be in the middle of all the fun and the love. I’ve known Dana and her family for most of my life so that could also be a part of the feeling… but I think anyone on the peripheral would have felt the same way. Genuine smiles and love flowing all over the place. I remember Dana telling me at our meeting that their wedding was all about their giant family of blood and friends. They threw the most beautiful party and put so much energy and personal attention into their day. Dana is a talented artist and she created so many of these beautiful details BY HAND!! Dana and Dustin were celebrated and surrounded by so many people that admire their relationship and we are so excited that we got to be there to capture this momentous day to kick off their married life together! Love you guys!!
