When I say that Katie and Matt and I bonded from our very first contact, I am not exaggerating one bit. Katie showed up to our consult meeting with a planner containing swear words on the cover, and y'all - I knew then that we were going to get along fantastically. I think anyone that knows Katie and Matt know what I'm talking about - to know them is to instantly love them, and I don't have words at my disposal extravagant enough to express just how much I <3 them. 

 

Photographing the way that I do - photojournalistically - means that I am there for every second of every intimate moment throughout a wedding day, and that takes trust between photographer and subject. It means so much that Katie and Matt invited me into their lives (and on such a BIG day) not as a hired vendor for their wedding day, but as a new and trusted friend. Selecting images to show on the blog post was so hard, because seeing them both just burst with happiness all day in their image makes it next to impossible to pick favorites.

 

But, I did my  best, so here goes - the beginning of Katie and Matt's beautiful story. <3

Did you know that there's such a thing as a vibrating makeup brush? Neither did Katie...until it touched her face.

The guys' getting ready is never boring.

That moment when you realize that your co-ribbon girl is getting a braid in her hair and you aren't.

A Cajun march! A first for me - guests trailed after the bride and groom around the dance floor, dancing as they went.
