I just loved Laura and Ryan immediately when I met them. Chic, fun, adventurous, caring and loving. How do you not love that in a person! I witnessed the epic images of their honeymoon and let me say, this couple know how to have fun and their love for each other is just boundless and obvious. It is this love, energy and the people that keep me loving being a wedding photographer.
A Barndiva Wedding gets Glamorized
I’ve done numerous weddings at Barndiva and can only say they just rock in every way imaginable. The location, the food, the staff, the ambiance and yea, everything. They obviously love what they do and what they represent because they have never failed to play an A game. These events are not about the vendors. They are about the guests and making sure ever need is considered. I can’t recommend this place enough. I have to admit, I’m a HUGE fan of the vendor meals.
Documentary wedding photography
It isn’t often that I get a good chunk of time for portraits but we had the time for this event. So you will see a lot of portraits but beyond this, it was all documentary. I’ve never been the one who does the super posed, editorial style portraits. They are just not me. Some are absolute masters at this. I am not one. But part of that stems from wanting to capture the essence of the day which, is obviously, emotion. An image can be technically all kinds of wrong but still speak volumes. I love those. Because I love what they say, show and simply make you feel something. I want the couple or those invited to see the gallery of images, to FEEL that day again. I don’t want to hear, “Oh, that is a great photo.” I really don’t. I want to hear, “Look at mom’s face. I love that because she was telling the story of…” This to me, is what wedding photography is all about. I just get to be the lucky one with the job.
If this wedding doesn’t make you laugh, then I don’t know what would! But scroll through and I hope you fall in love with this couple they way those who know them, and me, do.
