Ok, just one more from Chris and Emily's first look. Because, how amazing is this moment? Just after this picture, Emily placed Chris's heart on her chest to feel how hard her heart was beating. These are two are truly head-over-heals for each other. (Which is a hallmark of #PMACouples!)
I cannot tell you how excited I was when Chris and Emily let me take them to a nearby mountain for their First Look! They were married in the garden of Chris's parents backyard. The ceremony space was amazingling gorgeous, but the house was buzzing with friends and family getting ready for the wedding. Not exactly the best atmosphere for an intimate First Look. Luckily, I knew the neighborhood well and there were a few hiking trails just 10 minutes from the house. We enlisted the help of a friend of the couple, drove separately, and had an amazing First Look surrounded by the beauty of the desert. Chris and Emily were so thankful for the chance to get away from the hectic house and take a moment for themselves on their wedding day.
Remember how I was talking about resting? Well today my husband and I are cracking open some Butter Beers, popping some popcorn, and dipping some licorice wands to enjoy a day on the couch nerding out on Harry Potter. On the agenda is: - Binge watching the movies - Playing Harry Potter Scene It - Reading (maybe fishing?) Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Getting sick from all the sugar (not puking pastilles) we are eating
This season has been one of my most busy yet! The most hectic of weeks was shooting two weddings in a row and then going to a three day conference the next day!!! But as you know, I am always looking at the positives: I am doing what I am passionate about. I am getting to document people crazy in love on a very special day in their lives. I am meeting amazing people. I know the busy season is only temporary and will make me see my slow periods as times of rest, reflection, and growth. So here is to enjoying the ride with a smile on my face and looking forward to my week vacation the week of Christmas!
Every time I see you, I fall in love all over again. - Jennifer Behr This is such a great quote to explain the magic of First Looks! My couples are equally as emotional during their first look as they are walking down the aisle. Each time they see each other on their wedding day, they fall in love all over again. ♥️
