Sam and Joey are possibly the sweetest, most genuinely-in-love couple I have photographed to date. I had the pleasure of meeting Sam and her family in 2012 when I photographed her brother’s wedding and have been friends with their sweet family ever since. I was thrilled when Sam reached out to me about also documenting her day!
It was incredible how Sam and Joey’s families pitched in to make sure their day was perfect. Joey’s mother and sister spent the entire morning setting up the venue and perfecting the floral arrangements they did themselves, while they had their cousins to style the Sam’s hair and her makeup. Beyond her obviously gorgeous boho chic Rue De Seine wedding dress and flowy floral details, the couple themselves possessed a carefree persona the entire day which made documenting their day that much more enjoyable.
Sam is Joey’s bohemian princess, and their love is nothing short of a fairytale romance. Sam and Joey not only light up each other with their joy, but the lives of everyone else around them. The pure bliss that encompassed the entirety of their wedding day was intoxicating. With every interaction between Sam and Joey, there were giggles, smiles and stealing kisses whenever they had the chance. It was the type of wedding that had me tearing up during every speech, dance, and ceremony story. It is easy to see that these two were made for each other. They have already experienced so much together, from a serious car wreck early on in their relationship to the struggles of long distance travels ever since Joey’s band, Nightly, recently signed with a label. This was just another wonderful piece to their story. So grateful to have been able to witness and document their unwavering love.
Lastly, I wanted to give a big SHOUT OUT to Yaseli Olivera for being my killer second shooter!!
