One reason why I believe in and love what I do with all of my heart.
When this new website began in 2012, it started fresh as a blog so the prior weddings from 2009-2011 were no longer on my site. I would like to feature this 2011 wedding again for reasons I’ll explain. The wedding of Joe and Lisa is one of my all time favorites. Yes, the decorations, venue, and bride and groom were beautiful, but this wedding was truly more than that. The love was so strong, that it felt palpable and even I had to wipe away a few tears while shooting.
It’s difficult to express sometimes why I believe what I do is so important. Photographs that embody the most important milestones and times in our lives grow richer in value as time goes on, so we don’t always appreciate these documents until years have passed. Recently I received an email from Lisa, and it touched my heart.
“We have had a rough week…my Mother Phyllis passed away this past week and we have been trying to deal with the loss. What I wanted to email you about is that I have some wonderful pictures of my Mother and I over the years but the ones that I am SO very thankful for are the beautiful pictures that you captured of us on our wedding day. I just wanted you to know what a special gift you have and that you are very lucky to have a passion for something that can make such a large impact in peoples lives. I have always loved our wedding pictures and what you were able to capture but now more than ever they mean so much more!! Thank you for being there and being such a wonderful part of our special day.” -Lisa Jones
Thank you Lisa, for the honor of documenting your wonderful and love filled wedding day, as well as your special relationships with your family and friends. Thank you also for letting me share this with others. Joe and you both are beautiful on the outside and in.
