So this wedding has a pretty special and crazy backstory. Last year I held a contest for free wedding coverage through The Loveliest Day. Couples wrote in and explained a bit about their relationship, why photography was important to them and why having the opportunity to win the contest would mean the world. Emails started flying in. I was inspired, moved to tears and the deadline was approaching to pick only one couple out of all the lovely stories that had come through.
After I read Michaela’s email, I felt like I had an instant connection with her and Josh even though I had never met them. She so eloquently (and with a crazy touch of humor that only Michaela can pull off) explained their love – how they met, how he proposed, why photography was so important to them on their wedding day. I was drawn in. After a crazy bout of wedding planning and nailing down vendors and a venue Josh and Michaela finally tied the knot last weekend with a beautiful ceremony surrounded by amazing friends and family.
I was also assisted by a new second shooter who was a phenomenal help and added some beautiful photos of the day. Rich just moved from to California from England and I am excited to see him grow as a photographer in the States!
