I am super excited to share Jessica and Josh’s Lost Mission Wedding! As a passionate photographer, I had the privilege of capturing their special moments, and I must say, it was truly amazing. With every visit to this enchanting venue, I find myself capturing breathtaking shots that leave a lasting impression.
This time, however, was exceptional. I have dedicated myself to elevating my photography skills and refining my editing techniques to develop a consistent and unique style. By relying on two fixed lenses (58mm and 85mm), I have consciously chosen to forego the convenience of a zoom lens (24-200mm) that I typically use. This intentional gear simplification allows me to be fully present in the moment, rather than shooting from a distance. Not only does this approach enhance my interaction with clients, but it also challenges me to strive for the perfect shot. The superior quality of the images and the relief from carrying heavy equipment are undeniable benefits.
From start to finish, this wedding was an exceptional experience. The attention to detail, the radiant couple, and the picturesque time of year created an atmosphere of pure magic. Arriving two hours before the ceremony, I had the opportunity to capture precious moments of preparation and Jessica and Josh’s unforgettable first look. Witnessing Josh’s awe-struck reaction upon seeing Jessica for the first time was an unforgettable sight that will forever stay with me.
We efficiently completed all the family and wedding party shots before the ceremony commenced, allowing Jessica and Josh to enjoy extended quality time with their loved ones. The series begins with a naturally lit photo taken from the side of the chapel, where soft and moody lighting created the perfect ambiance. I seized this opportunity to create a mesmerizing image. Once the wedding day portraits were complete, it was time for the reception—a vibrant celebration filled with countless joyous moments. Selecting the shots for this collection proved challenging, as there were so many fun-filled highlights to choose from. Be sure to check out one of my personal favorites—the garter grab photo below!
Being part of this wedding was an absolute delight, and I’m thrilled to share these extraordinary photos with all of you. Join me in extending heartfelt congratulations to Jessica and Josh on their new journey together. Their love story is beautifully immortalized in these images, and I am honored to have been a part of their unforgettable day.
