From the moment Naomi asked me to photograph her wedding, I had a gut feeling that it would be something special. We’ve never met and had only spoken thru Skype, yet it wasn’t where she said the wedding would be, or how it would be. It was something in the way she said it and the way she spoke about Alan, I had a feeling it would be a special day.
I think it’s safe to say I’ve never photographed a wedding so physically and spiritually beautiful. Naomi told me that she always wanted a rustic bohemian wedding but I was blown away the moment I arrived, and the place where Naomi and Alan did their first look took my breath away – it was magical. The thing is, they didn’t spend a huge ton of money to make this all happen. Their family and friends chipped in by cooking desserts, hanging up the lights, setting it all up and making sure there was some kick ass music throughout the night. Somehow it all worked out and I have an inkling that things like these only happen to special people.
I will always remember how appreciative they were throughout the entire day, how the light was perfect, the warmth of that clear autumn day, the love between the two of them, and the genuine joy in the air as the band played throughout the night.
This is probably the longest blog post I’ve ever done, but there isn’t any way to make it any shorter. Take your time, and if you immerse yourself till the end, I promise you a beautiful story and a perfect ending.
“I pray that you never forget true love,
that honeymoon bubble never pops,
I pray you love freely,
that you always look to young love as a reminder of where you started.”
