The moment Stephanie walked in the Starbucks for our meeting, I knew that I was about to make a friend. Forget booking her as my bride, I wanted to eat snacks with her and help her move into her new place (which did happen, by the way). I got lucky because not only did I make a friend, but she did book me as her wedding photographer. The day I met Zach was the day he came home from an underway. Her and I rushed to the pier just so they can see each other for 1 minute. The way he hugged her, I knew she was going to be the light of his life for the rest of their life. Now flash forward, I am excited to share their beautiful Gala 417 Wedding.
Love was in the air the second I walked in. I had a feeling it was going to be a wonderful day. I greeted Steph with a hug, met the girls, and got right to work. Capturing details is one of my favorite things to do, it allows me to be creative!
Not long after, my second photographer Sarah showed up and was ready to roll. She met Zach, and the rest of the guys, and head outside for a quick 20 minute photo session. The ceremony began and as the Bride walked down the aisle, sniffles and sighs from the groom (at how beautiful she is) filled the room. It was indeed a beautiful ceremony, and of course, one heck of a reception to follow. Everyone of all ages were dancing to old classic and new hits without a care and judgement in the world. The day ended with the couple doing one last private dance, and a perfect sparkler exit! Congrats to Zach and Steph on your beautiful wedding day!
