I can't speak for every wedding photographer, but in my case, there's always one wedding each season that I look forward to maybe just a little bit more than the others. Whether it be the couple that I'm working with or a venue I like shooting...I don't know, but it could be any number of factors. Well this year this was the wedding I looked forward to.
I distinctly remember meeting up with Michelle and Joe for the first time, searching throughout Panera Bread for the lady with the leopard print dress that she said she'd be wearing. It was their fun and energetic personalities that made me excited to work with them and I eagerly anticipated their big day.
Well, I definitely was not disappointed. The Aria is a breathtaking venue that I very much enjoyed shooting, but it paled in comparison to the bride and groom. Their love and affection for one another was plain for all to see that day and I count it a privilege to be able to photograph such a wonderful couple.
