Part of a photographer’s bliss is getting to spend time in the light of other people’s happiness. We step in, take only fragments of memories, and retreat with humble satisfaction and warmth in our hearts. Now and then we get to hear back from clients (whom at this point we now consider friends, comrades, and sometimes family), which is like finding an unexpected box of cookies on your doorstep at the end of a long day. (Sidenote.. When are doorstep cookies expected? If you are the type to expect cookies, let me know your secret.)
Jessica and Brian had an absolutely magical day last summer and I got to be there for every smile, every tear, and every laugh. Thank you for letting me into your world for a day, and having the kindness to leave behind some beautiful words of thanks.
“I put a lot of thought into my wedding photographer. My now-husband and I are both designers/artists so this was one of the most important decisions to us. We knew that regardless of what food we ate, the dress I wore, or the music we played, we want to remember it forever. We needed a photographer who not only took photos of our wedding, but captured the emotions of the day. In 20 years, I want to remember the laughs we had while getting ready, the tear in my father’s eye as he linked his arm in mine to walk me down the aisle, the look on my husband’s face when I walked in the chapel, the love we shared during our first first kiss, and every beautiful moment that I may have overlooked during a very busy and fast day.
Everyone will say this, but I didn’t realize how right they were until my wedding – the day goes by SO fast. I’m glad I found someone who took stunning photos so I could sit and remember every bit that flew by too quickly. That was exactly what I was looking for, and Hilary was exactly what I needed.” -Jessica Senchak
