Every couple I meet is so unique. I feel so lucky to get to know so many people and hear their stories and be a part of their big day. Sometimes it just strikes me that even though my couples vary so greatly, they have all chosen me to be their photographer. I think there is meaning in that and I don’t for one second take it for granted.
Joseph and Sarah definitely fit the bill of unique. But in the best way possible. First of all, they planned their wedding in one month! So many people take planning so seriously and dedicate a significant chunk of time to their wedding day. There’s nothing wrong with that at all. But there is something to be said about a couple who gets it done in a month. I guess when you know, you know, right?
There also aren’t many brides who would be thrilled with a ring pop proposal. But that’s exactly how Joseph proposed and it was perfect for them. They were on a hike and he didn’t know the size or style she wanted, so he suckered (pun intended!) her into marrying him by popping the question with a candy ring! I think it’s so sweet that he wanted her to be part of that process of picking a ring too. They did things as a team and I think that’s how they pulled off such a beautiful wedding in such a short time.
They are moving overseas so their wedding had a beautiful travel theme. The attention to detail was so remarkable. All day I kept having to remind myself that they did this with such little time! They are rock star planners and their day reflected who they are as a couple perfectly.
What I loved most wasn’t the decor, the food, her dress, or the location (though all were amazing!). It was that the focus was on them as a couple. They prioritized their marriage over the wedding day and it showed in the way they looked at each other and how they interacted all day. The love they had for each other shined in each and every moment. They even kept remarking about how nothing was going as planned but they couldn’t have cared less. They were marrying their best friend and that was clearly all that mattered.
You guys are going to do incredible things with your life and it was truly a blessing to be able to photograph you as you start this journey. Thank you so much for having me!
