I am about to share with you all the sweetest most intimate wedding on the beach that will make you want to have all your bride and groom portraits done by the sand… even if you aren’t married or have already done so years ago. I’ve known Janey since she was an itty bitty little thing way too young to even imagine what she would one day look like dressed as a bride. She’s always had this sweetness to her that whenever I’ve mentioned her name its been in an ‘aww Janey’ melodious tone that brings a smile to my face. Years ago when she began dating Jesus, I watched pictures of them roll through Instagram and I told her then that one day when she would marry Jesus, I would love to photograph them together. Because they were just too adorable not to. I then went on my extended maternity leave and thought nothing more of subject. As if it was a sweet treat to kick off 2017, guess who’s wedding was my first of the year… Janey and Jesus.
They had what I would call a perfect beachfront wedding with nothing else but the intense love they have for one another. Even as the rain started to trickle down on us during the beginning of their ceremony I knew it would only add to the sparkle of their wedding day story. A story they will be able to share with their sons and daughters and grandchildren alike. After all wedding day photographs are meant to preserve a memory that only happens once in a lifetime. And quite rapidly I may add. Seeing them so in love and happy to be with one another truly moved me and inspired me this shoot. I felt as if I wasn’t directing them at all but simply witnessing their love. Here are some of my favorite moments from that beautiful day, one of the beginning chapters of your love story, with many more surely to come.
