Eager to photograph whenever possible, I volunteered myself to a family friend on her wedding day. Although KC and Jonathan had already hired a photographer, I was touched when KC invited me to document the hours before the wedding. So on a beautiful Sonoma morning, I joined KC, her bridesmaids, and mother to capture the commencement of the wedding experience. Fortunately I was able to shoot alongside the hired photographer later on framing moments of KC and Jonathan’s special day.
KC and Jonathan met in their third year of law school through a mutual friend; the two then dated throughout the next year. While studying for the bar exam and with KC’s move to Mississippi for a fellowship in the near future, Jonathan and KC discovered they wanted to be seriously involved. So together they moved into a smaller trailer in Mississippi. The fact even without luxuries, they didn’t want to be anywhere else but beside each other was pretty telling.
In both the photos above and below, I just loved the overwhelming emotions and their ability to touch even through a photograph.
