This one is a big deal for me. When my friend Matt Andrews asked me to help document Kim and Alex’s beautiful Legacy Farms wedding with him I was excited for sure. When he told me that he fully trusted my artistic vision and that I had the freedom to shoot as much film as I liked it upped the stakes. Prior to this wedding I had shot a handful of rolls here and there at each wedding for almost a year’s time, but I had yet to fully commit myself to the process and shoot exclusively film for an entire day. For this one the digital camera didn’t come out until the sun went down, and it made the entire experience and end results all the more special.
I pour my heart into every wedding I photograph because I know how incredible the experience of getting married is, but because of my connection to the photographic process while shooting film and the organic nature of analog capture, the images below have a soul all their own in my eyes. I didn’t meet Kim and Alex until I arrived the afternoon of the wedding, but I realized very quickly that they were an amazing couple who shared a deep and meaningful love, and that they really understood what mattered the most. And I feel like the love and joy that was so evident on their wedding day is also evident in the images below, which as a photographer is all that I can ask for.
A huge thanks go out to Kelly Knight and Susan Solbrig of Decadent Details Events for planning and coordinating this gorgeous wedding and to Devon Morris of Belles & Buttercups for the stunning floral work. Not only were the emotions and meaning of the day perfect, but so was every last detail. It made for an extremely special wedding.
