hold on kids, this post is gonna be a big one. 🙂
to be honest, i’m not entirely sure where to begin…we’ve known chris for, i don’t know, 7 years and while that time seems like forever ago you know you have “true” friends when it feels like you’ve only just seen each other last week. our lives have taken different paths, big moves across state lines and new career paths. and while it’s always incredibly humbling when a friend asks you to document their lives on their biggest day, we were so very excited to take on the challenge. and by “challenge” i mean adventure. 🙂
we totally fell in love with alex during their
fun, amazing, stunning, phenomenal and every other descriptive adjective in the book engagement session. we always end-up chatting about the wedding details, but when alex was describing her vision, i was all sorts of excited! she’s a totally amazing designer, who, i might add, made nearly all of the amazing details you’ll see (which truthfully needs an entire blog post).
there seemed to be a larger percentage of *goose-bump moments* during the day too…you know, those moments that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up. the moments where we as photographers know to just keep still and click away. we kind of love those moments.
i’ll end with; it’s pretty magical to be there to witness when two friends start their lives together.
and to alex & chris…we love you guys, it’s just that simple. thank you for inviting us to be a part of your amazing day.
