a long time ago, when it was perfectly acceptable for me to sip margaritas on sunny monday afternoons at holy taco, matt & i had the pleasure of meeting vanessa & christos. they were down to earth and their warm smiles and fascinating stories kept us happily in our seats as the sun fell lower. sometimes during a meeting i find myself wishing i was shooting right then- capturing the way they look at one another as the other talks, capturing the love and laughter as they relay their own story to us. such beautiful moments! but in those times i quickly realize that shooting their wedding day will be a wonderful treat and it makes us even more grateful to them for inviting us in to their celebration. vanessa & christos’ wedding day was so relaxed and full of sweet moments and laughter- we didn’t see any of the stress that can often sneak in- nothing could take away their smiles. they kept such a great perspective on the day, soaking up the smiles of their family and friends, dancing and catching up and still finding quiet moments to be together throughout it all. i really love these two. :)
christos’ quiet words kept vanessa grinning the whole day. it was so sweet to see the two of them so wrapped up in one another, so quick to laugh together and so obviously in love.
i know matt already tweeted this image but i could not leave it out of this post. i love quick moments like this during family portraits- some might consider this an outtake- i think it’s a beautiful image of a family that really loves one another and has a lot of fun. :)
vanessa & christos, thank you so much for inviting us in to your beautiful wedding day. we loved capturing you two as well as your family and friends. we wish you the very very best!
