Matt and I worked together for a short little while, when I was working as an on campus Studio Artist at Full Sail University. He was assigned to shadow me for his first month there. During that time we became friendly with one another and I learn a little about him, his life and the love of his life, Erin. A few months after I received a call from him telling me that he was interested in me to be his wedding photographer. I was surprised and extremely flattered as well. Since then I meet Erin and him a few times and I have gotten to see how they are with one another. They are crazy about each other and very excited about their upcoming wedding in 2012. They have their whole lives ahead of them and their love story is going to be a great story for the grandkids someday.
I met Frances through her brother Angel, who is an incredible dancer that I had the privilege of previously photographing. We had our first consultation at a local coffee shop where I also got to meet her mother, Vanessa, who is as sweet as can be. Her adorable son, Maddox, who without knowing me gave me a high five. Frances and I immediately connected and she understood my vision as we saw eye to eye on what her wedding photography would be like.
As the weeks went by and they prepared for the big day, I got to know Brian and the rest of the family while learning more about their story. They are just the sweetest and most caring and genuine kind of people. Although Frances and Brian were already married, they never had the chance to celebrate the big day the way they wanted. This fantasy like wedding was ever more blessed with their sons presence, families and friends.
Brian’s father, unfortunately, had passed away before this special day. Brian’s son, who was also his best man, gave him a picture with himself, his father and his grandfather in it. Brian put it in his jacket pocket so his dad could be by his side the entire time. The love in the air transcended into the day and to everyone involved. I was blessed to have met this beautiful couple and it was an honor to capture their story and their day.
