“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.’”
It is no secret that one of my favorite things to photograph is The HideOut Kirkwood weddings. In fact, I love them so much that when Lauren and Tony got in touch with me to photograph their wedding I wasn’t even bothered that their wedding day was on my birthday! In fact, I was excited that I would get to spend the first day of my 38th year at one of the loveliest places I’ve ever been. Add to that the fact that Lauren and Tony are some of the loveliest humans ever, and it was a perfectly beautiful beginning to my latest trip around the sun. Lauren and Tony had a beautiful engagement session in San Francisco, so I was so very excited for their wedding day. Getting to HideOut and meeting all the family and friends who were so happy for them made it even better! Lauren chose an incredible Sarah Seven dress that was so perfect for her! Her pastel bridesmaids dresses and all the fun customization that went into the wedding made the day even more special. Lauren and Tony got these great wooden stines for their bridal party that were engraved and everything! It was such a fun way to honor their besties who stood beside them as they became Mr. and Mrs. Lauren and Tony, thank you for having us be part of your incredible wedding! We loved it!!
