“Listen, it’s 2018. Our story started with a dating app…” The words you’ll first read when visiting their wedding website. They may have met in a modern way, but their love is classic. It’s easy. It’s comforting. It makes you want to stare. Being in their presence gives hope to love lost and renews your faith in love that already is.

Photographing these two was such a joy. There were times I truly felt blessed just to be near their love and see it with my own eyes. It was effortless, and I believe you’ll easily see that in these photos below. Their love just is.

On their first date they met for coffee. Simple enough. Have a coffee. Have a chat. No pressure here. Then 5 hours later…

Fast forward a week, take a walk around the parthenon, have a seat on a bench swing, blink, ELEVEN hours go by…. Now I don’t know what you think, but I think that anyone you can sit and have continuous conversation with for E-L-E-V-E-N hours is going to leave a permanent mark on your life. You know how those first REAL dates go. You can’t stop smiling, you hold hands, you inch closer and closer to each other as that comfort level grows, and by the end of it you feel as if you’re leaving a small piece of your heart behind as you say goodbye.

Love is simple. It just is. Love isn’t easy. Love just happens. You can’t contain it. You can’t will it to be. But you can see it. You feel it when you’re in it’s presence. And that’s what you feel when you’re with these two beautiful souls. – Thank you Brooke and Jackson for allowing me to capture your love.
