A friend asked me last night, "What is your favorite and most creative wedding you've ever photographed?". I sat there and thought for a minute. My response to her was that what stands out to me more than any amount of artistic details (though those are of course fun to see + photograph) is the connection between the couple. The sweet and authentic love between Patrick and Kesley, and the love their families and friends had for one another left me in tears multiple times through out their wedding weekend.
Patrick and Kelsey met and started dating in high school, and have been together for almost 10 years. And even still when they saw each other for the first time they were both blissful and giddy. Everyone in their wedding party grew up together....like I'm talking elementary through high school and college. So the level of joy and support and love coming from all angles was really unique and special.
Couples like Patrick and Kelsey remind me why I do what I do, and why I consider it such an honor to be apart of a couple's unique journey. You two are gems. I'm so grateful our paths crossed. And I hope you're enjoying St. Lucia!!!
