Unforgettable. Each couple leaves a trace of a sweet memory behind as I leave a bit of myself as well while I document the evolution of their love. It's something different every time, and it's got nothing to do with a favorite portfolio shot, although that's often how those portfolio shots are born - out of that favorite, unique "thing". Each couple is so different, with different venues (or same venues yet a completely different feel), varying budgets, unique floral and table arrangements and tastes, different priorities, lighting, weather, moods, and attitudes. It all flavors and becomes part of their story.
When it comes to Emily and Phil I'll always remember their sweet and intimate exchange of vows in the park, after their first look. They didn't want an audience, they wanted that first chance to really say and really listed to what the other had to say, an elopement before their wedding, if you will. With wedding days packed and eventful, there isn't always time to squeeze everything that's possible in, so choices are made to see what truly matters to each couple. These two really cared about that alone time, and that little moment will forever be something I think about when I recall their wedding day. And, a good day it was. Truly unforgettable, in fact. Congrats Emily and Phil, you two really are an amazing match! -- with love, Ester
PS. A huge thank you to my 2nd shooter Ivy, for capturing the guys getting ready, and some other fun angles and moments from the day!
