This season is such a whirlwind—wedding season always is. Then if you add it to that fact that we are 40 days away from our own wedding, it feels like a constant little flurry of activity all the time. But every wedding makes me stop. It makes me look with my eyes wide open at the time passing before me and remember all the moments that bookmark our lives. Grown men, reflecting on the day they dropped their daughter off for kindergarten twenty years ago. A bride in full hair + make up, dancing around a bridal suite with the girls who have been by her side since day one. You remember who you’ve been and you see who you’re becoming. You cry remembering the monumental moments that brought you here, and you get a little baby glimpse at the life you’re carving out from this day forward. That’s why I’ve shot weddings for six years and that’s why I have no plans of stopping.

This wedding was extra special because it was Johnny’s best friend’s wedding. We got to participate in those little pauses in time. Johnny watched next to Jake’s side, and I got to watch from my favorite view—behind the camera. We could see our future in this day. The people who will be in our lives forever, promising forever to each other. We danced along side them and cried when they cried. The best kind of day.
