It was a gloriously breezy and sunny day in Agua Dulce, CA, and Chris and Ellie were getting married. The day was perfectly filled in the most beautiful ways- filled with joy, filled with color, filled with laughter, filled with tears, filled with prayer, filled with love. Ellie and Chris decided to not see each other before the ceremony but instead chose to do a “fake” first look where they could pray with each other without seeing each other. One of my favorite moments of the day was getting ready to take that “fake” first look photo, seeing Chris’s anxious face and Ellie’s excited grin. The second she reached out and held his hand from the other side of the barn door, the biggest smile I have ever seen crossed Chris’s face. He didn’t have to see her physically, but he knew his beautiful bride was just a few feet away, anxiously awaiting with him the moment when they would become husband and wife. It’s that kind of simple yet beautiful love that was so present that day. From the colorful flowers, the incredible dancers, the home cooked food and the beautiful venue- this day made a lasting impact on me. Thank you Ellie and Chris for giving me the honor of photographing your dearly special day.
Also, a HUGE shout out to the wonderful Bridgette Ambrose Photography for second shooting for me on this special day.
