Our last wedding of 2014 was just the best way to tie up an amazing year of capturing and celebrating love. Lauren & Steve are high school sweethearts- more in love now than ever, who bring so much joy to one another and those around them. Photographing them on their high school campus where their ceremony was held was so special to us- to see where it all began for them and capture them in that environment so full of memories was such a sweet thing. But i have a feeling Lauren & Steve are just as comfortable anywhere they go- as long as they are together. We couldn’t be happier for two people so perfectly paired. Lauren & Steve, congratulations! We are so happy for you- what a joy it was to celebrate with you and capture such an awesome day!
What an incredible feeling to come home from shooting a wedding with the amount of energy and excitement I had after Lina & Alex’s wedding. It means a few things happened: that Lina & Alex are so in love and happy together that they spent their wedding day grinning from ear to ear and overflowing with happiness, it means they trusted my vision for their day and were up for any suggestions I had for them, and it also means that their wedding day was planned with time built in for spontaneous fun and detours along the way. Basically it means Lina & Alex are wonderful people, deeply in love and perfect together- what a joy to photograph! Authentic lives:
Lina & Alex, congratulations! It is such a blessing to see two people as perfect together as you- we wish you the very best and thank you for having me there to capture such joy!
This time of year always sends me into reflection- how the previous year has changed me, how the previous 5 years- even 10 years- have molded Kate and me into the family we are today. As we have changed, so has our work. Photographs taken when we started ALTMIX Photography almost 8 years ago look pretty different than the images I make today. Some of you have walked this with us- you’ve seen us stretch ourselves and grow and change into the photographers we are today- and you’ve stuck with us through it all. It is not without a little apprehension that we thank you when we hear you’ve followed our work since the beginning- I want to immediately explain how much I’ve learned and matured- but it’s in those moments that I realize my images still speak the same language they did 8 years ago and you understand that language and ‘get’ my point of view. Amanda is one of those people. She has kept up with our work since 2008 when we photographed a friend of hers. That’s 7 years! What a privilege for me to be able to photograph her wedding all these years later!
