If you are reading my blog you probably know that Jeremy and I are wedding photographers. There are so many reasons that we love doing what we do. We love working together, we love photography, we are both creatives, we love being self-employed…and the list goes on. One of the big reasons for me though, is capturing memories and focusing on the meaning and covenant of marriage.
At the beginning of this year a read an amazing book called “This Momentary Marriage” by John Piper at the recommendation of my sweet friend Amanda. The book was life changing and taught me so much about how marriage represents God’s love for us and is a picture of Christ’s relationship with His Church. I love that we have a job that celebrates this covenant week after week. It is such an honor to capture the love between a husband and wife, and to see them commit their lives to each other.
We got to shoot an anniversary session this summer for one of our sweet couples celebrating their 6 month anniversary just weeks after Beth, the gorgeous bride had been diagnosed with Leukemia and begun Chemo. It was one of the most touching sessions we have ever photographed…because, really…isn’t this what marriage is all about? Loving each other through everything that life brings along.
