I wish I could shoot this wedding day over & over again. There was fun and warmth and honesty everywhere I looked. I think couples often feel pressure to plan and have things a certain way on a wedding day. I give Robert & Emily a lot of props for not letting any of that pressure in, and instead plan a day that was 100% reflective of them and their priorities. They made their vows surrounded by a small group of their favorite folks, standing on the front porch of the home they share. With the help of her mom, Emily made her wedding outfit, and she wore jewelry that had special significance to her. Robert planned his outfit around a brand new pair of white leather high-top Vans (and I really think he nailed it).
There were so many moments of tenderness and connection, between Robert and Emily – but also between everyone that came to be in celebration with them. As a photographer, I’m often witness to these very human moments. I’m so grateful when I’ve earned the trust of the people I’m photographing – when they trust me enough to be themselves and I can capture that. It’s the best gift.
Robert & Emily, thank you so much for trusting me and for planning such a lovely wedding celebration.
All I can say is… more intimate weddings at home please, thanks.
