“I’ve been a fan for a long time and I would love it if you could photograph my small wedding”.
Show me a wedding photographer that doesn’t like messages like that, and I will personally smack them.
In a little park and corner of Pasadena, Jonathan and Julian proclaimed their love in front of their closest ones. Jonathan has a laugh and smile that can transcend universes, which fits perfectly since Julian is quite the funny man. Speaking of funny, in all my years of being a wedding photography I haven’t heard an officiant as funny as Jonathan and Julian had. You could tell they were all friends from improv class, because even I had to put down my camera and laugh a few times.
I’ve photographed many big weddings, and while they are hella fun, a small wedding will always hold that place in my heart. In my mind, nothing beats the intimacy behind it, from small personal touches in each wedding to having even more moments to share with those that are very special to you.
Jonathan and Julian, your love is a very special one. There are no other ways around it. Your love is like the moon, keeping those around you happily in your orbit. You are magnetic and make people around you want to get even closer. Thank you for the honor of documenting your first day as husband and husband. Much love.
