When Garren and I were contacted by Kassandra for the first time to discuss their wedding details she said to me that she felt connected by our personalities through our website. And while at the time I didn’t know much about her or Joseph – we learned over the course of their wedding festivities that there was good reason for that! These two were like family to us! So welcoming, warm, and sweet! It’s not everyday you get the pleasure of being so comfortable & at peace working with your couples. Between the silly jokes, giant donuts, and hugs – I also feel very connected to these sweet families!
Their wedding day was one of the most heartfelt and emotional weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing! Every moment was sincere and loving – we were so thankful to have genuine emotion filling the frames of our cameras. Our main goal is not to stage and pose the perfect photos for a bride and groom, but to capture the true emotions and the unplanned laugher, tears, and moments. We LOVE being able to witness such joyful days!
I’d be lying if I said that we didn’t get attached in a way. A lot of times Garren and I find ourselves becoming overwhelmed with joy during a ceremony or.. like during this wedding – the daddy daughter dance. I’m a sucker for sweet songs especially ones about being a parent. (I blame it on my daughter Anna – she has ruined me for all time of being able to hold back tears!!) When Kassandra and her dad Ken Ingersoll started dancing – I lost it! And of course I look over at Garren hiding behind his camera trying not to cry, too! A daddy-daughter relationship is so precious.
We want to thank the Ingersoll and Garrison families for being so kind and hospitable. It was an absolute pleasure working with everyone involved and we can’t thank you all enough!! These sweet families even insisted we take doggie bags of the delicious catering home! Of course we had to have some fun with the bridal party!! Hah! Who doesn’t love being chased by a DINO!?
