I adore shooting weddings of couples who adore each other. Jessica and Jason are without a doubt one of those couples…but their wedding was special because it was so much more than just about Jessica and Jason. It signified Jessica, Jason and Mia, Jessica’s 4-year-old daughter, becoming a family. The love all three of them share is genuine and was easy to capture through my lens.
Their late August wedding wove thoughtful details throughout the day, fully embracing this new, sweet little family. Jessica’s refined taste and bubbly disposition combined with Jason’s “salt of the earth” personality made for a fun and fabulous day. Lovely little Mia was included in all parts of the celebration. The reception at the rustically elegant barn at Adaumont Farm was a full on party and it was a joy to watch two families melt together so beautifully. When the party started breaking out the train, I grabbed a mirror from one of the tables and created a “double train” effect in the photograph. The reception was larger than life and I love that the image now reflects that.
Their wedding day was so hot that we had to ditch the planned outdoor formals. But nothing could damper the mood nor the amazing images we were able to capture of Jessica and Jason. One of my favorite images of the day came from an indoor shot of Jessica…she is walking down the stairs of her new home, dressed in her graceful wedding gown, ready to go to the ceremony…she looks perfectly serene and the image is colorful yet evocatively soft. There is a Grace Kelly air about Jessica and the photograph. I love it because, to me, the photograph is completely Jessica.
I adore everything about this newly created family and I was so thrilled to capture their new beginning.
