Josh & Alyssa - Married!

This weekend marked the incredibly divine uniting of two of the most wonderful people and families I've had the honor of capturing. Josh and Alyssa have been a couple now for 13 years so this special day was much anticipated by many. So much love, so much generosity and so much support and warmth just radiated from the entire community who gathered to celebrate with them. Unfortunately the day began with three members of their close family being admitted to various hospitals in the upper valley. Thankfully, all will be OK but there was much concern when I arrived early in the day. By the end of the day, two of the three had been released from the hospital and one fantastic Grandma actually made it to the wedding in time!!!! Now that's incredible. It's so amazing when you are hired as a photographer and you can totally see yourself being friends with the people you are documenting. I consider myself truly blessed to be a part of the beginning of their married life together. These guys were just so gracious, not to mention gorgeous. So much thought and so much planning went into every detail of the day. A special shout out goes to the "Wonder Pets" who worked tirelessly to get the tent ready in time. Well done. It was truly a team effort and one which the family will treasure forever. I will share more images of the details in posts to follow, but for now I wanted to share a few images of Josh and Alyssa.....simply stunning and so in love!

Sharna, It was an absolute pleasure having you and your little helper be part of our special day! You not only use your eye to master your craft, but you use your heart to capture every moment. I can't wait to see the rest of the photographs, I'm sure they're breathtaking. Thank you again for your humor and charm during our 90 degree days. -Nichole

Thanks Nichole. I must admit, I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to stink around!!! It was hotter than ever, but we all made it with style and grace....and a little sweat!!!!

IF this is just the beginning can't wait to see the rest of the photographs. Alyssa & Josh are an amazing couple and as one of the Wonder Pets it was my pleasure helping make there day everything they ever wanted. It was also great watching you work and the best part is we never knew you were there (i think the sign of a great photographer)
