Jane and Jon could quite possibly be two of the most genuinely kind hearts that ever lived. From our first chat with them on skype we knew they’d be a joy to work with, and meeting them in New York City for the engagement session didn’t disappoint. With their creative spirits (he’s in film and she’s a web designer), love for delicious local food, and great taste in music there was plenty to chat about. I believe it goes without saying that they are perhaps THE perfect subjects to have in front of the camera, and adding that magnificent New York skyline into the mix made it hard to stop taking pictures of them! We’re so looking forward to their wedding this fall, and if their friends are anything like they are it’s sure to be an amazing celebration!
The warm fuzzies that Adam and I feel when we even simply see or say their names are overwhelming, and the tears that ran down my cheeks just looking at the photos from their wedding were full of admiration and appreciation for their kind, caring, and genuine sweet selves. All I could think during their wedding was that these two are the “salt of the earth”, the kind of people who light up people’s lives and leave lasting impressions. It’s people like Sister and David that remind us of the important things in life- friends, family and faith- and inspire us all to make each second count towards something greater. So, while these photos are some of our all time favorites, we hope that you see more than a composition and pretty light, because the people in them are worth taking note of. :)
Every now and then, holidays or other special dates (9-10-11 or 11-11-11, for example) fall on weekends and it always catches us off guard. When Joe first wrote us from Chicago about photographing their Cinco de Mayo wedding at Wild Onion Ranch in Austin, we thought “Oh FUN! I’ll bet they’ll have tequila and stuff!” Little did we know that their date would be one of the most requested dates we’ve ever had, and we were so thrilled that Joe and Denise had contacted us when they did, because there is nowhere else we would have rather been than at their party of a wedding. Here’s some favorites from Joe and Nisey’s outdoor wedding in Austin, Texas. Maybe have a ‘rita while you look you know… to add to the experience.
Almost 4 years ago, this lovely lady made me look beautiful for my own wedding day. To start that day off with such a positive energy (and fantastic hair!) could have been one of the best decisions I made for that day, and for the years to come. I knew then that we’d be fast friends, and over the past few years we’ve come to love and appreciate this fine lady as one of our very favorite people. We’ve been talking for a while about taking some photos of her, so when another photographer/videographer friend expressed interest in going on a photo walk to share secrets, we thought Emily would be the perfect subject. And she was.
To meet Emily and her talented scissors, fan her on facebook! Head to Lucy Skyrocket’s facebook page and tell your friends, because she’s awesome.
