This is a story about how my forever muse slash dear friend Janel - whom I've known since I was 10 - got married a few years ago and promptly moved away from her long time home location of the northeast to the ever beautiful location of the Pacific Northwest. Now I love all things nature, all things PNW, and all things wedding photography, so all of that, paired with the fact that Janel still had her wedding dress, basically made for the perfect set of conditions for me to fly over to Washington for an EPIC BRIDAL SESH.
Social media is a beautiful thing.
In this lovely technological world we live in, wedding photography and videography abounds (or should I say, bombards) newly engaged or soon to be engaged couples in the Instagram and Facebook world. For the bride and groom beginning to plan their wedding, social media is #life.
I don't have to tell you just how important, momentous, amazing, emotional, and intimate a wedding day is. You'll feel all of the feels since the moment of engagement until you slip the rings on each other's fingers the day of, and the photographs of this special day will make you feel those feels over and over again each time you see them- from the posed to the most candid.
I'm an extrovert and I love people. I love relationships (all kinds! - between family members, with pets, with friends, with lovers) and I love the tie that binds them always: LOVE. That intense emotion that can flood your brain and your heart and your whole entire system and move you to do things and feel things you thought you couldn't feel or do.
