Craig + Gabrielle
Have you ever watched About Time? If you have not… what are you doing with your life? If you have, you get a star and, you will know exactly what I am talking about. You know that feeling you get after you watch that movie? The warm excited feeling about life? That feeling that marriage is all that it’s cracked up to be, it’s beautiful and messy and full of arguments and love making. That feeling that this world isn’t all going to hell, there is hope. There is are real love stories that become timeless and instills that desire to have one. That is the feeling I got during Craig and Gabrielle’s wedding. It wasn’t their beautiful floral arrangements or the Sedona Red Rocks in the background or her stunning dress. It was the way he looked at her as if she was the only one in the room. The way he danced with her and kissed her with tenderness. I could feel their friendship rooted on understanding and sacrifice for each other. I didn’t see individuals that day, I saw a web of intricately designed moments and memories and hard conversations and good conversations, selflessness, honesty, and desire that made up this couple. I don’t often feel THIS much at a wedding, mind you I am an intense feeler…to the degree I cry during the vows or first dance, but this wedding something deeper caught me off guard and I could hear the About Time theme song playing in my head as I photographed all day.
( I REPEAT— if you have not seen that movie, please go watch it. Curl up with your love or a friend and enjoy the beauty of film and life).
There isn’t much more to say because I hope the photos evoke the same type of timeless love and hope I had during the day.
