I finally feel like spring is here, and the April showers are definitely in full effect! I thought it would be a great day to feature a wedding filled with sunshine and energy to keep you moving through the afternoon! Sarah & Jose are one of the liveliest and energetic couples I had the pleasure of meeting last year, while I joined one of my good photography friends, Tara Lynn Sen to shoot their wedding. It’s not often that a couple will leave over two hours for photos, but Sarah & Jose did just that, and powered through in 97 degree temperatures to enjoy every second of their day! Not only are they fun, but Sarah & Jose are filled with kindness, making sure we were taken care of throughout the day, including giving us our own hankies to help beat the heat. There was not one time during the day that either of them didn’t look like they were bursting at the seams with excitement. Starting off with Jose and his guys definitely let me know that a lot of fun was in store, with his childhood home bustling with friends and family prepping for the celebration.
Jose can really rock out the GQ when necessary. I mean come on, who is able to actually raise one eyebrow like that. You nailed it, Jose. And with that, we were ready to head off to the church, and await Sarah’s arrival for the ceremony!
These were the most wonderful programs I’ve seen at a wedding – while your guests are waiting, why not have a fun magazine style booklet for your guests to sneak a peek at your engagement photos, and read the story that led up to your big day?
After the ceremony, we made our way to Larz Anderson Park and spent some time making awesome portraits of those nearest and dearest to Sarah & Jose. There is always a new space to play every time I shoot there, and it’s quite wonderful!
From the get-go, everyone was all smiles and ready to party, and with the most adorable little ones kicking it off on the dance floor, this reception defined the meaning of celebration!
This series makes me laugh, every single time. I just recently realized that someone out there has a video of me taking these photos!
Thank you Tara, for having me along with you, and Sarah & Jose, I don’t even have to wish you a lifetime of happiness, because I know without a doubt, it is there for the taking for you!
