A couple of weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to explore one of the most amazing places on the planet, Ireland. While there, something happened that I did not expect and am still trying to figure out what exactly to do about it. I fell in love. I fell in love with photography all over again. It was as if I was seeing the world for the first time and with every turn in our path, I just fell deeper and deeper into my passion.
Now, this amazing wedding wasn’t in Ireland, but it was the first chance that I have had since returning from my journey to be behind the camera again. And I must say, I fell in love, all over again.
There is something so amazing that happens on a wedding day. All of the hustle and bustle, excitement, and energy that is swirling in the air is simply beautiful. Then, in the midst of all of that, there are these moments…these quiet, still, often overlooked moments that sprinkle such beauty throughout the day. It’s found in the glance of the father of bride into his wife’s eyes as they watch their baby girl getting ready to start a life with the man of her dreams. It’s found in the stillness of the moment when the bride is finally all dressed and ready to go and everyone just stops to take it in. It’s in the moments after the wedding ceremony is complete and I take the bride and groom away for a few minutes to just have some time together. These moments are what make up the “Perfect Wedding Day” for me.
It’s always a really special moment when a friend asks you to photograph their wedding. Having known Luke & Leah for what seems like forever, this wedding was particularly special to me. Being a part of their story, from the time they started dating until today, made everything about the day so incredibly beautiful.
I am so proud of the adults that these two have become and am so excited about the life that they are going to be able to build, together, as a family. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so, here is about a million words worth of pictures from their amazing day.
