Four years ago, Mike & Kelsea were married on the tropical sands of the Bahamas.
To celebrate, they donned their wedding clothes once again on the not-nearly-as-warm sands of California.
Oh yeah -- and I took pictures :)
When I was a child, my bedtime stories were filled with woodland elves, giant spiders, black riders, hobbits, and all things Tolkien.
When I was in high school, I was often lost in my own world with my nose in a book or teaching myself a mythical language.
Though I am now an adult, I am still forever searching for ways to bring those magical lands to life through my lens.
So you can imagine my excitement when Colleen asked if I would want to bring Middle Earth to life in the form of a wedding inspiration shoot. And who else could possibly pose as our Elven lovebirds but my childhood best friend and muse, Quin, and her husband Tony?!
If you know me at all, you know how much I love my job.
It's seriously the best job in the whole entire solar system, nay -- UNIVERSE.
Nothing reminds me of that fact more than photographing married couples.
Meet Dan and Abby (who shares my best-job-in-the-world as a photographer, check her out yo).
They live in Colorado Springs, CO and have been married for 9 years. And come Christmas, they will be adopting twin boys (!!!!!!!!!!!)
Couples in love are my THING. They inspire me to no end. But aged love that has experienced the purpose of marriage vows -- that is the black unicorn of love to me: THE COOLEST MOST MAGICAL THING EVER.
