I met Jessica last year while photographing her best friend's wedding. It's such an honor to "keep it in the family", see familiar faces, and document such special days in their lives. Jessica and Carl had a romantic sunrise engagement session on the beach, and as the details of their classic wedding began to emerge, I grew more and more excited.
Gorgeous couple? Check.
Beautiful venue? Yep.
Genuine reactions from family after seeing Jessica as a bride for the first time? Oh you know it.
Jessica and her girls got ready for the big day at the newly renovated Waterstone Resort and Marina.
Oh, you know, just making friends with the ring-bearer.
Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" was playing, and my second-shooter Chelsea ran to me to point out this sweet moment. We instantly fell in love with these two, and the lyrics mean even more now. We shot these images with tears in our eyes. THIS is what it's all about.
Congratulations, Jessica and Carl! Thank you so much for letting me be part of your magical day!
