Andrea and Spur were one heck of a couple. Not only did they start dating in high school, which is incredible, but despite distance with school and growing up, they found that in life they grow together. That is such an important thing in marriage, because as humans we are constantly changing.. change is something we should invite, but our priorities should be how our personal changes affect or spouses lives. I think it is so beautiful when two people fall in love at such a young age where so much growth occurs between high school and where they are at now in their lives, and yet, through all their growth they are truly *better together.* Andrea is a natural in front of the camera, my lens loved her ;) And Spur? Well, between him and his best friends, they made for some fabulous FUN photos! I love when people aren't scared to let their personality come through. I always try to make my brides and grooms feels completely at ease with me, and being themselves around me. :)
When Diane's friend contacted me to photograph her and Rolando's wedding, I was so excited! They met in Mexico, and Diane, being fluent in Spanish, hit it off instantly with Rolando when she met him. The two stayed in contact, fell in love, and the rest is history. There is so much love between them, and in the working together of the familys. His family flew all the way from Mexico for their wedding, and they had translators. The best part was during the ceremony when they spoke both languages. To make things even better, Diane's older brother is the one who ordained the ceremony. Such a beautiful and special thing to be a part of, they played some fabulous traditional games at the reception, too! Enjoy.
Lauren and Foster were high school sweethearts, so when I met with them to be along for their journey, I couldn't be more excited. Not only are they both beautiful people, but together they really are something else. It was never difficult to talk them through any of the sessions, from engagements, to bridals, to their big day. Everything was just spot on, perfect, and absolutely breathtaking. More images may be found under the Weddings tab, but here are a few! Enjoy!
