I remember the day I first met these two. They told me their plans. To go to South Carolina with their family and friends for an unforgettable weekend to get married. I knew instantly that I wanted to be the one to document this for them. For one weekend we were transported to a magical beach house on the Atlantic for a celebration of love, family and friendship. I am so happy for these two. Their weekend turned out perfect beyond their wildest dreams. Here is a small sampling of the story from that weekend.
It was fun. Emotional. Beautiful. I meet these two in Chicago for the first time to take their engagement pictures. Their wedding was at the Randall Art Gallery in St. Louis. Recording their story was so much fun and fulfilling for me. I just love being a part of these special days.
This is Erica and Maxwell. I met them in Newport Oregon at the Rogue Brewery. They were sitting behind me and I could not help but notice the man’s tattoo which promoted him to ask me to join them. They were on a road trip like me up the coast and it wasn’t long until I asked if I could take their portraits which is something I do a lot on these trips. We communicated by text when conversing because they are both deaf. But when we went out to shoot the communication was emotional. This is one of the highlights of this years road trip. I learned a lot from these two, including on how I can communicate better with clients when taking their pictures.
