I’m going to be honest: I cried at this wedding. A lot. There were tears in my eyes during most of the day. Toni and Jeff are one of the sweetest, most selfless couples I’ve met, and after getting to know their families, I see where it comes from! I was so welcomed into their day, by everyone who loves this wonderful couple. After nearly seven years of waiting, Toni and Jeff finally experienced what was so worth the wait: their wedding day! The emotion was so so genuine throughout the day– from Toni’s first look with her dad, to Jeff’s reaction as she walked down the aisle– every moment was beautiful.
My favorite part of the day were their portraits as husband and wife. We snuck away to a nearby field during golden hour, just as the sun was setting. That light! I’ve photographed a lot of couples, and these images are some of my favorites so far. I could see in Jeff the feeling of absolute joy, just knowing that Toni was finally his wife… and Toni glowed like every bride should, truly beautiful from the inside out. Toni and Jeff, thank you again for including me. I’m happy to call both of you new friends!! Enjoy your new life together as newlyweds!
