Have you ever been to a wedding, maybe even your own, and just thought to yourself “wow this is so them”? When I got the email from Karley saying I had to photograph their wedding I knew this would be one of those times. Karley and Pat are both artists, people of their own will and just so much fun. I knew that their wedding would be all of that tied into one. What I didn’t know is that I’d be just as emotional at this wedding as part of their family.
Karley and I attended the same college, had similar life experiences and share some pretty amazing friends. To hold the honor of photographing their wedding day was something I held so, so dear. I arrived to a group of excited girls jamming out to 80’s music. There were hand painted leather jackets hung with a bridal gown, a banana flask hanging out on a counter, and lots of laughing. I was greeted by hugs and so many excited hellos. As Karley brought all of her details out I got a great sense of exactly the kind of wedding we were having today. It was 100% them. Artistic but traditional, sentimental but fun. All of the things that these two hold close.
I really could sit here and tell you so many things about why I had so much fun with them on their wedding day, but instead I think I’ll just share some of their images with you. I do want to give literally the biggest shout out to my very good friend Jessica for coming along to help out. I really couldn’t have gotten through the day without her.
Pat & Karley- where do I even begin? I could say thank you for having me as a part of the day but that seems not even close to enough. This has been a journey, and to know that I was there to see some of it unfold was so wonderful. I wish you nothing but laughter and love, wisdom and peace. You two are each other’s rock and it shows from miles away.
