Stephen + Sandra were such a joy to work with! I met them last December (2013) and sat down to coffee/tea to talk about their wedding. We discussed their vision for their wedding and I instantly fell in love with them. I remember telling them before nearly anyone else that I was pregnant. I let them know that it wouldn’t interfere with their engagement photos or their wedding and I still remember Stephen (groom) asking me if I was going to bring the baby to the wedding. I completely understood his need to make sure the baby wouldn’t be there (adults-only wedding) but I do look back and laugh at that…thinking that some crazy photographers might actually try that. It still makes me smile thinking about it. I was blessed that my mom was able to watch my 3-month-old (exactly 3 months on their wedding day) since my husband is still on deployment. I remember walking away from that meeting feeling so full of joy. I was nervous that they wouldn’t want a “new mom” as their photographer. Sandra, being a nurse, instantly knew what my journey was going to look like – and was so supportive!
Everything about this couple is beautiful – of course, on the outside, but their spirits are so kind and selfless. I loved watching Stephen look at his bride with complete love; and Sandra’s laugh was contagious. This day was perfect. The rain even stopped just for our photos. I hope you smile just as big as me as you scroll through the first day of their “happily ever after!”
