Intimate, personal, details. Of the many things that stick in my memory when it comes to a wedding day, the details tend to remain imbedded in my mind long after the day is over. And Amanda and Richard had SO many thoughtful details that we so personal to their day, I think I gasped at least five times! The presents her mom gave her that were so catered to her personality. Their engraved ring boxes, his custom cuff links, their personalized cake topper that looked exactly like them (a nurse and a cop, handcuffed together). The “Father of the Bride” tie clip. Her bouquet charms to keep those who watched this day from Heaven close. The list goes on and on, and the attention and intention that went into creating this amazing day took my breath away. That’s what makes my job so incredibly special – capturing a day that so much heart and soul went into, and so much heart and soul is born from.
Amanda and Richard’s wedding day was a long time coming, as they had to postpone a year out due to the pandemic. I had the pleasure of photographing their intimate elopement in leu of the circumstances, and what an absolute privilege that was! Watching them adapt and thrive in their first year of marriage up until this day has been so inspiring, and I can’t wait to see what the coming years bring for them! Amanda and Richard, thank you for letting me be a part of the biggest days of your lives. From your engagement session, to your elopement, to this “anniversary party”/wedding day, I can’t believe I’ve gotten to experience this crazy ride with you, in the best way. And I know that just as you cared for every small detail of your wedding day, you will put just as much care into the important details of your relationship for the rest of your lives. Congratulations you two, you deserve all the happiness in the world!
