Kristiana and Matt’s wedding toward the end of last season was a joy to be a part of. Being able to dig beyond the wedding and tell stories visually is the sole purpose of why I am a wedding photographer. Having the trust given to me by my clients helps me to really search for those images that not only tell a story but also tell who people truly are. Kristiana and Matt gave me that trust. It started with Kristiana telling me of how close she was to her brother and how he is was going to be the one walking her down the aisle as a stand in for their father who was no longer living. It was the kind of side story that I look for at each and every event I document. I loved how cool and comfortable the couple was all day. It really was a testament to their relationship as well as their personalities making it a joy to photograph.

One of my favorite images I shot all year. This is why being present when brides get dressed pays off. Tells a lot about Kristiana’s personality.
Leaving for the ceremony.
