Sergio and Shirley are two of the most joyful people I've ever met. They radiate love and kindness. As I prepared to take the detail shots of Shirley's accessories I understood where her kindness came from. People rushed around me and got ready for this Friday wedding but made sure I didn't have to lift anything other than my camera.
The couple met on a bridge over the river for their first look. When he finally saw her his eyes grew big and a huge smile spread across his face. While we wished for a cool sunny day in February, the type of frigid wind that chapped your lips and froze your nose was present. Between shots I let them snuggle with my blanket as they laughed at the irony and excitement of the day. Shirley told me one of the things she loves about him is the way he always finds a way to make her laugh even in a rough situation.
The ceremony time quickly arrived, and Shirley was walking down the aisle with her mother and father at her side. Of course, Sergio and Shirley have a deep love for one another, but it was the love and appreciation they showed everyone around them that was extra special.
Sergio + Shirley, I enjoyed every minute with the two of you. We talked and laughed like we had known each other for years. After months of planning and long conversations, it was an honor to finally watch all of it come to life. Congrats you two!
