Dear Ashley and Joel...from the moment you emailed me months ago...I knew...I just knew from the first line that this was going to work out well. Sometimes people don't understand how much the relationship between a photographer and the couple being photographed matters. It matters a lot.
Ashley and Joel knew that everything that matters to them matters to me. I was able to capture their day with such joy and pure excitement...delighting in the same things that make their relationship what it is today. It was a.m.a.z.i.n.g.
But that wasn't all that mattered.
Ashley and Joel's day was full of details that mattered to them...things that defined their relationship. Puzzle pieces scattered on every table representing the many puzzles they put together when they first started dating. Tons and tons of books that represented their love of reading. Little math equations because Ashley is a teacher. And the list goes on. What a wonderful way to celebrate with the people you love most...celebrating an even more beautiful love with your new spouse...and a celebration that is a complete reflection of your relationship together. Man oh man....that is what it is about!!!
Thank you Ashley and Joel for inviting me into your lives and for showing me yet again how amazing love is. Your hearts are amazing and I am honored to know you both. Oh and thanks for the jar of pickles...they may already be gone :)
