With the closing of summer here is an engagement session that reflects just that…summer…
Remember playing in the water in the summer as a child? That feeling of freedom with no care in the world? I was reminded of that during this shoot. Joyce and Jesse live fun. At least that’s the sense I get from interacting with them. They aren’t afraid to laugh and kick off their shoes or get their clothes wet. Props to keeping alive the inner child.
It’s so sweet when you meet couples who perfectly compliment each other. Aside from the fiery romance that media calls “love” there’s also the aspect of partnership that is so sweet in marriage. It’s a blessing to find that someone that will laugh at our not-so-funny jokes and think they look cute when they’ve just woken up from deep slumber. Someone that will smooth out our rough edges and someone who will lend strength to the other when they need it. From what I’ve deciphered through my interaction with jane and jae…they have that.
Yay, desserts!! You know, I’ve never tried a wedding cake before. The only weddings I’ve ever been to didn’t have any cakes! I don’t know if I would like to have one at my own future wedding because they look so perfect, I don’t know how I’d be able to cut into it!
I picked up this magazine after discovering it who knows where (probably saw it on instagram. I LOVE INSTAGRAM!) If you’re not familiar with the magazine it’s basically full of images that are subtly gorgeous, has recipes for some cool things like pumpkin butter and how to make the perfect cup of coffee for one. It’s such a poetic little book/magazine that celebrates the simple art of gathering and communing together.
Our relationship began several years ago when these two lovebirds booked me 2 years in advance so you’ll understand when I say that shooting their wedding felt like shooting an old friends wedding. Steph is super duper cool! Can a bride be more chill and cool on their own wedding? I mean, she got a mosquito bite on her forehead right when we started the photoshoot portion of the day and it just did not bother her. Also, a super duper cool element that they had at their wedding reception was a bubble tea stand! AWESOMENESS!!!!!
