...great marriages are more important than great weddings.
...real love doesn't just exist in fairytales. It can happen in real life, too.
...real love is hard work but very much worth the effort.
...couples who are true best friends at the core of their relationship can survive anything when hard times come.
...couples who love and serve each other well are inspirational.
...couples who encourage, respect and see the best in each other can change the world.
...dating and flirting with your mate shouldn't end after the wedding.
...marriage maintenance is a must.
...mutual weirdness and laughter can spice up a relationship.
...everyone of us can love and be loved.
I love to tell stories. To take real life moments and capture them on film. To burn memories and details forever into our minds. To capture feelings for future generations to witness. We will become great friends over the time we work together. That vulnerability allows me to catch moments beyond “Smile at the camera and say CHEESE!”. It’s real life…every beautiful, messy and breathtaking part.
Good marriages are built with hard work, sweat, tears, prayer and a whole lot of love, patience and respect. I adore photographing weddings. I love the little details and the Pinterest projects. I love the planning and dreaming. I love the colorful flowers, the silky dresses and the perfectly matching pocket squares. And cake… We must not forget the cake. But I wonder… Why do people put more time into planning their weddings than they do their actual marriages? I know that’s a funny statement coming from a wedding photographer. Wouldn’t I want you to spend a ton of time planning your wedding? Wouldn’t I want to capture beautiful details? Sure, I do. But I want you to spend just as much, if not more time on your marriage. Long after the guests are gone and the cake has been eaten, you’ll have each other and you’ll have photographs. Build your relationship to last.
I can’t wait to tell your love story.
