I sat back during Brook + Cory's first look and just stared. Surrounded by my team of photographers and videographers tucked away in rows and rows of dark pine trees with the sounds of birds and little animals landing in the needles all around us the whole world seemed like it slowed down. I looked around at my team and we were all smiling - not just because the light was beautiful, or the background was working just right - but because these two were so perfectly caught up in each other that they could barely hear us talking to them. From the moment I stepped inside their home that morning to photograph Brooke getting her hair + makeup done, to the first notes of their first dance the feeling in the room was the same : anticipation. These are two people who were ready for what is to come, and who are embracing life as a team and it totally shows in their joy for each other. I'm so grateful I got to press the button on this wedding. So thankful for a day spent with my friends, my team, and two beautiful families celebrating two amazing people.
