Married | Jess & Chris

I love the emotions that are visible during a wedding. The ones that are seen and not heard. The pride on a parents face as they watch their little girl get ready in the morning. The anticipation you see on guests when the last bridesmaid walks down the aisle. The deep breath that the groom takes shortly after. The look of excitement as the bride steps around the corner, seeing her future before her. The way they look at each other after they kiss as husband and wife for the first time - pure love.
I consider it a blessing to be able to witness and capture these moments. It's why I do what I do.
Jess and Chris were married surrounded by their closest friends and family just before Christmas. It was so special to watch my two friends commit their lives to one another. Two friends who are filled with so much love for each other, so much joy. They celebrated all day and all night and never got caught up in the whole 'business' of a wedding. The day was about them, the God they committed their lives to, and the compassion their friends and family had for them. Nothing else mattered.
