Ali and Jordan. My goodness this couple is wonderful.
We are so very thankful that we were asked to take Ali and Jodan’s wedding photos. Because from the moment we met this couple, they have been wonderful. They’re so sweet, gentle, thankful, joyful. They welcomed us into their celebration with open arms and allowed us to have the happiest day with their friends and family – who are also incredible. I’m always thankful for this job we get to do but it’s on days like these where I nearly have to pinch myself that I get to witness this much happiness. It really is an honor.
Ali and Jordan received their photos just a week after their wedding, and their thankfulness was immediate. Starting with a text from Ali’s mom:
“I wanted to thank you so much for taking such beautiful pictures for Ali and Jordan’s wedding. They’re just stunning. I can’t stop looking at them and I can’t quit smiling. You have to be so happy! You captured Ali’s beautiful soul.”
The thankfulness continued:
“Everyone that’s seen Ali and Jordan’s wedding photos think they need to be entered into a contest and you would win.”
And from Ali herself:
“Sara!!! Thank you so, so much. We LOVE them!!!! You’re the best. Thank you!”
We are the luckiest to have this job because it really is so much fun. But there’s nothing better than hearing excitement like this. Sometimes it’s hard for me to quantify what we do because it seems really frivolous to talk about linen selections, bridesmaid dress colors and uplighting all day. And we know that as years in a marriage pass, the wedding photos start to come off the wall and pictures of kids go up. But we also know that those wedding photos will be forever cherished. Candids of family members will be celebrated for years to come, photos of a bride and groom will be shared at their kids and then grandkids weddings. These pictures are forever and we just have to say “thank you” to every single person who has ever invited us into your lives to take these forever photos for you. We’re forever thankful.
