Honestly, Hannah + Ben's sweet hill country wedding was one of the best surprises of the summer. Not shooting engagements with clients before the wedding always creates a little bit of suspense about how comfortable they are in front of the camera and with you and your direction, as the photographer, when you show up on the big day. In these situations, I usually have to work a little bit harder to anticipate the couple's vibe, how they interact with one another, and how to get the most emotion out of them in a short period of time. BUT, my job has NEVER been easier than when I showed up to shoot Hannah + Ben's day. The love and joy between them was oozing into every single frame, with little to no direction on my end. They laid all of their depth, excitement, and tears out on the table, and the photos produced capture some of the most emotional moments I've ever witnessed. YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP, PEOPLE!!! I felt so honored to be present in these moments and to capture just small glimpses of how stinking in love these two are. Seriously, never have I ever seen a groom so gentle with his bride as Ben. And Hannah lit up everywhere she went all day long. Hannah + Ben's wedding day perfectly encapsulated everything I believe about weddings; that they are so much more than parties. They are sacred days, filled with holy displays of grand, Christ-like love.
Hannah + Ben, thank you for letting me capture such an intimate day. Thank you for being two of the kindest clients and people I have ever met and continuing to lavish love and support on me, even after the wedding. You two radiate the love of God so beautifully, and I will forever treasure being your wedding photographer!
