Macie and Jakob are two of the sweetest people I’ve had the privilege of photographing(they also have a super sweet family!). It feels like we’ve waited for FOREVER for their wedding day. We did their engagement session last summer (you can see that here) and Macie’s bridal session (see it here), so I got to know them pretty well. Jakob is the quiet entertainment, and Macie is a kind, beautiful soul. They’re both very driven and very much in love with each other. Being a part of their wedding not only made me feel full of honor, but full of happy tears as well! Watching their moms trying to hold back the tears and comforting each other when possible, and capturing Macie and Jake’s faces as they saw each other for the first time–it was priceless, and I think we could all feel the love.
It ended up raining almost the entire day, but we embraced it! The rain broke long enough for us to get some pretty outside photos in that beautiful natural light, and at the end of the night we got some amazing night portraits!
Macie had all of the Swarovski! I caught this sweet moment of the moms right before they left the house to go to the ceremony. This sweet moment says everything
Extra flower petals are ALWAYS a good idea! The fog rolling in over the hills was creepy and beautiful, all at the same time. This kid had moves! #relationshipgoals right here! They were gliding on the dance floor all night! They’re next ;) ;) ;) My favorite photos from the entire day are right here! *Insert all the heart-eye emojis* The water droplets on my lens made this turn out so cool!
Congratulations, Macie and Jakob!
