There are not enough beautiful words to describe Michelle + Mark’s wedding day–that’s why I took pictures.
Their day was an absolute dream–they wanted their wedding to be full of memories and beautiful moments, and it was.
From Michelle: “If I had to describe my philosophy for our wedding (and the planning of it) it would be, “Capturing the Moments.” Being the last of 6 children to get married I knew how stressful weddings could be. Mark and I had a short engagement so decisions had to be made quickly with an emphasis on creating moments where we could just enjoy the day, not endure it. That philosophy affected everything from the time of day we got married, to the food we ate, to the photographer we selected. Mark and I are friendly but private people and I especially wanted moments with him on our wedding day before the sealing and right afterward where we could experience what we were doing and not just be swept along through the madness of reception lines and family photos. Magical couldn’t begin to describe how I felt driving with him in the Monaco to the temple, holding hands, quietly chatting about what we were about to do. We were each other’s rock that day and we were able to stay grounded and genuine by capturing those moments of our wedding day together.”
Getting to know couples like Michelle and Mark reminds me why I am so passionate about wedding photography–the day was brimming with love, giddy excitement, and pure joy. From the gorgeous weather to Michelle’s adorable nephews showing off for the camera to their warm, wonderful family, the day could not have been more perfect. It is such a rare privilege to witness the depth of a couple’s relationship in such an intimate way as a photographer.
Thank you, Meesh and Mark, for sharing those incredible moments with me. It was an absolute honor.
