I am a huge fan of natural light, will do almost anything to avoid using a flash...and almost never use a lens hood - I actually INVITE the lens flare, glare, strange colors & lines that nature contributes to my images. However, never ever has the light "spoke" through my images more than it did during this wedding.
The couple not only had pictures and mementos of Kelsey's father sprinkled throughout their day - pictures framed at the salon while Kels got ready, on the bar with a Red Sox clad "Jer-Bear" (who had his own drink!), with a bouquet of sunflowers...Kelsey even had his picture on the back of her shoes so that he could be there to help walk her down the aisle! Kelsey also had a huge surprise for her groom when she presented Nick with a Grateful Dead ice cream wedding cake to remember one of his closest friends! The importance of remembering those not able to be there was clear, and I truly believe these special spirits chose to reciprocate the love - beautiful rainbows and "orbs" appeared in the images at key moments throughout the day- during the first look, as Kelsey & Nick said their final "I-Do"s, shared their first kiss, walked away as husband & wife, and finally as they lit lanterns to close out the evening. Do you all get chills like I do?<3 <3 <3
Kelsey & Nick - thank you for letting me share in all of the amazing moments throughout your day. I felt honored to be the one to be there to witness the love and happiness & I wish you a lifetime of pure joy!
