a wedding that other weddings dream about in their little wedding sleep.
its unexplainable, every so often, there’s just a magic about what a couple is able to create. like a unicorn riding a bike. or a puppy playing a piano. when you see it, you just cant take your eyes off it. and its these days i just count my lucky stars that people continue to allow me to be apart of that magic..as if documenting it could somehow capture what we all felt that day.
chelsea & austin enjoy.
they live in it. they love. they radiate.
watching them together and those that support them, really truly was an honor.
not about the rules, but about what brings meaning. like writing their vows side by side in bed. // riding their typical way there and about, on a long board. // having a mid-day beach reception because they really do love the sea. // and creating a magical atmosphere to sit and celebrate their evening.
all the parts. bravo to all the parts, because each step just felt like them.
Chelsea & I found each other years and years ago when circumstances weren’t as happy and we had loved ones in the hospital. over the years, we had a little internet friendship and i love seeing the ways the world brings people into each others lives….I’m so grateful that I got to be a part of such a magical day like this and appreciate so much, the love and generosity couples continue to bring to me in order to document their day.
what’s so important to me as a photographer is connection. im not doing this as a machine. when i feel, when there’s that connection…it impacts my work so much. no way around it. its amazing what it can do and i aint pretending it doesnt matter. im so grateful that i continually am found by couples who are seeking that connection rather than packages and hours. its days like this, that i fall in my bed and am so grateful that i get to do what i get to do.
ALL THE LOVE.
a lot of times, you dont really know the experience…sure you see the photos, but what was it like for the bride the day of? It’s always my aim to bring a badass experience, zest, joy and a lot of direction. Chelsea wrote me the sweetest note, so i wanted to include it…to share a bit from the other side of the equation here.
Andria Lindquist – you are a wonder of wonders and I have known for years that my wedding day would not have been my wedding day without you by our side documenting it all. You were worth every single cent and aside from marrying my fine ass husband, you were definitely one of the best decisions I made for our wedding. Thank you for choosing to be with us, and thank you beyond words for killing it and giving us such incredible magic. We ended the day wishing that it would go on forever, and now looking back at the photos it feels like we’re right back there – laughing all the laughs and crying alllllll the tears.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
