Yes, I used the word gravy. And these are good. Their love is big and loud. Their tribe, strong and lighthearted. And beautiful.
I’m gonna cut to the chase, let the images show you darling love , so scroll if you’d like. What you are looking at is love of two wise peeps, what you are looking at is exactly the type of engagements that I hope to create a life and career around.
If you’re still here, at the bottom, I’ll finish up all the words and feels of what it was like to document this type of love and community.
Avery & Zack, thank you. thank you for inviting me into your home and letting me document your heart.
Ever had that deep, sinking, grounding feeling when you say yes to something? Cool, me too. From booking, to first meet up, to wedding day fun, this pair is a delight to talk with and photograph. Their friends and family ( all 37 of them) took every effort to ask if I needed anything. I’d be friends with every single person here, even grandma. Actually if I only walked away with Grandma’s mailing address and her friendship, I would be her lifetime pen pal and call the day a win.
These two, they’ve got it. All of it. They are rich in their love and community. When it was time for toasts, I found myself completely wrapped up in the words, the poetry (yes, there was poetry), the joy, the humor, the deep belly laughs of what people said about these two. The grooms siblings had an incredible delivery of wise words, appreciation and comical confessions. One of the brothers Josiah, wrote a powerful spoken verse. I almost clapped at the end. THANK GOODNESS I didn’t as that’s not cool, the photographer is supposed to be ninja, not a crying clapping photographer.
The evening was supplemented with more toasts, delicious food, hugs, stomping, dancing and of course, lots of love.
Thank you, if you’re still here. Thank you, if you’ve got love like this.
