Can I just say…elopements are my favorite! There is just something so special about being one of the only people or sometimes the only person that your couple has chosen to witness their intimate exchange of vows. It is a high honor that I cherish and feel so privileged to capture. Further, these small, intimate ceremonies give me so much more creative freedom as their photographer! I love feeling like part of the family as I capture their every day life before the vows. And I love having so much more time with the couple themselves to really dive in and capture their love. It’s an amazing way to tell their story! Julie, Ian, Raleigh and Gizmo truly stole my heart with their beautiful family and the love they share. And not only was it special to capture because Julie & Ian were getting married, but also because they are about to move. So being a part of this more intimate day allowed me to really tell the story of their life at home before having to say goodbye to it. Connecting with them to find and capture what was most important filled my heart and soul! Congratulations Julie & Ian! Thank you for including me in such an amazing day!
