It’s well-known that we try to only shoot the weddings of people we enjoy. We think that’s better for the clients, and better for us… more beautiful art gets created when subject and artist all “get” one another. 🙂 But that doesn’t mean we end up being actual FRIENDS with every couple we shoot. That’s still a rare and wonderful gift that happens once every couple of years. We feel like that’s what happened when we met Adria & Shawn last year, and photographed their sweet Dominican Republic elopement.
Since then, we’ve grown to really cherish their friendship, and mourn the fact that they live several hours away. But hey, that just means we have to MAKE time to hang out! We loved that they were able to come visit us for a family session (and family date to the local BBQ joint). As the kids all ran & played together, we again counted our blessings, and made sure to voice the gratitude we feel for photography having brought such wonderful people into our lives.
plus, HELLO, these family pictures are the bomb.com.
Check out just a couple faves:
Silly faces for the win.
Obviously, saved the best for last. That photo sums up everything I love about this family. Relaxed, natural, and kiiiiind of goofy. 🙂 Love you guys! Can’t wait to see you again soon!
