Being a wedding photographer, I see so many of the same moments over and over again. Some people may think that would get boring, but over and over I get to see such beautiful love expressed. It often brings a tear to my eye and it definitely fills my heart with so much love and gratitude.
Ben & Megan are two of the nicest, most caring people I have ever met. The love they have for their friends and family is so evident and they express their thankfulness for them often. This also makes their relationship something so special. When you're with them you feel like family. I was so grateful to meet this wonderful couple and capture these meaningful moments.
Here were some of my favorites:
1. The first look! In my photography I am very passionate about capturing real moments. Natural expressions tell you so much about the couple and their love and it just makes me so happy to look through the photos and see those moments that were captured. This first look was so real and so incredibly beautiful. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to take any other pictures because they just wanted to hold each other. It was magical.
2. The Maid of Honor speech. Not only were these two sisters, but they are twins! I have always thought it would be cool to have twins someday just to witness the bond that they share. The speech Megan's sister shared was so beautiful and filled with love. She talked about how much she loved her sister, but she also talked about how perfect Ben is for her. She said something like, "I was there when your heart started beating and Ben will be there when your heart stops." I thought that was such a sweet sentiment.
3. The gift! Somehow the wedding party and family kept a huge secret from the happy couple. They bought them a honeymoon to ALASKA! If you know anything about this couple you know that they love the outdoors, fishing, and exploring together. Alaska was an absolute perfect gift for these newlyweds and their expressions are priceless. You'll see those a bit later.
Thanks for reading and enjoy these beautiful photos from a perfect November day.
