January is already half over, I seriously can not believe it. I am a father to a month old baby, a husband in an almost five year marriage, and owner of a business that has photographed almost 200 weddings. This year we will pass that number, it’s crazy. Every one of these moments captured below mean the world to us. Peering into all of these couples’ lives for just a day is one of the most amazing things we do. I can not believe the amount of memories I have seen — all of these sweet and inspiring couples marry the love of their lives. It is something people dream of for years, this simple idea of perfection. Many of us know, and many of us learn that marriage is not an easy journey. You will laugh, smile, and cry with your best friend for the rest of your lives together. I love that I can now look back and finally start to understand that marriage really is not easy. It takes a lot of work for both sides to work, communicate and love each other. It is worth it! It is worth it for every lazy morning in bed, every new adventure, and every vacation on a whim. Those laughs and tears add up to this feeling I can not describe yet being so young in this world of marriage and life. I just know that it keeps getting better every single moment we are together.
Our life together is crazy beautiful and not for every couple. Lisa and I have worked together now for over 8 years and have lived together for over 6 years. We spend almost every moment of every day close to each other. We learn how to calm each other, inspire each other and drive each other crazy. You have to do all of it to be happy. It took me a couple years to understand that it is not always perfect and I will accidentally piss her off but it is ok. As long as I apologize when I am wrong and try and apologize when I am right we will be ok. Tomorrow will be another day for a new adventure, a new smile, and a new tear. I really want to thank everyone reading this for being a huge part of making us who we are. We have grown as artists, as a couple, as parents, and as a husband and wife, because of you. Our family, friends, and clients allow us to see love through eyes filled with new love and old. That glimpse into your life is what inspires us to capture every story as the untold adventure of a new family beginning. That is what every one of these images are below. A tiny moment from the day a new family was created. I hope you enjoy seeing a few of our favorite photos of 2013. We were taken to places we never dreamed possible in 2008 when our journey as wedding photographers began, and it is all because of you that these photos exist. Thank you again for reading, caring, listening, loving and inspiring us.
