I know I tell you guys this all of the time, but I really do adore my job. Every single wedding reminds me that love is a choice, and in the craziness of this world today, it is nice to be reminded almost weekly that people are still making that choice. I have known Josh almost my entire life, as our dads were both on staff at Crossroads Church, and Rachel and I went to high school together and even played on the same tennis team. As soon as these two started dating, we all knew it was match, set, game (see what I did there). When they told me their plan for their wedding day was to elope to Chateau Elan with only their immediate families, I couldn't have jumped any faster at the opportunity. The entire morning was relaxed, full of emotion, and exactly what a wedding day should be. Josh and Rachel truly celebrated the meaning of marriage throughout their ceremony (performed by Josh's dad...cue the tears), and the whole time I was reminded why I began to photograph these memories in the first place. Here is a just a little peek into the magic of their day...as always, celebrate love!
