I remember when Devin and Abby first approached me about their wedding at the end of 2010. I remember thinking that 2012 felt SO far away. I remember thinking the same thing while shooting their engagement session this past spring. And yet on Saturday, as they said I do, I remember thinking how fast it all felt, that here they were on their wedding day, saying their vows. Something that had previously seemed so far away, was happening right then and there. And then I wondered if they felt the same way. You plan and you plan for something that seems far off, an event in the distant future. And yet it all happens so fast. You blink and your wedding day is here, you blink once more and the day is done. I'm so grateful, that as a wedding photographer, I can steal those fleeting moments away for forever. While time marches on, a photograph is forever. On Saturday I was reminded that this is why I love what I do.
Abby & Devin, life returns to normal for you this week. There's a house to be cleaned, jobs to be done, pets to be taken care of. But yet something has changed. You are not longer two, but one. And while day to day life may look the same, there is an unspoken commitment to one another, a bond you now share as husband and wife. Yes life marches on, but it will never be the same. (and of course, don't forget there's a July honeymoon to look forward too!)
I'm honored that we we're able to share in your day! I'm honored that I get to call you friends. Here's to starting returning to normal again. The same but completely different.

Love this image taken by Coco!
Sometimes the best angle isn't the obvious one. Love it Coco!
Are they not the most adorable?!
Time to give the bride away!
I love the moments after a couple walks down the aisle, they are so filled with joy and excitement!
Abby really wanted images with the ledge behind them. But the only place to do that was in a snow covered field. They were troopers and jumped right in! Devin didn't even have boots on!
First dances are my favorite!
I tried a few different things this weekend and I'm so excited about the results! I can't wait to play more as the season goes on!
