Parker Mill Wedding : L + J

two brides walking in the rain at the parker mill

Over the years shooting weddings for a living, one thing you constantly notice is how things change.  Trends, styles, and dance floor music selection are constantly evolving (except for those 10-12 songs that get played at every wedding…you know which ones I’m talking about).  What’s in one year is out the next.  What’s a surprise today is the standard tomorrow.  With that constant state of change, there is one thing that is always in and will never go out of style.  Moments.  Real moments, little moments, emotional moments, funny moments.  By far one of my favorite elements of doing what we do is that pure documentary style approach to capture those uninterrupted moments.  Don’t get us wrong, we love setting up the grand sunset or creative lighting fine art shots, but getting to witness authentic moments between our couples and their families is more than just a fun thing to do for a living.  It truly is a gift.

Which brings us to our love story between Laura and Julianna!  We absolutely adored these two.  From that first hug, to the first dance, Laura and Julianna were a perfect picture of love and their wedding day was filled with all of the moments.  Even more than that, you could tell how much of a light they were in other people’s lives.  Everyone seemed stoked to be there and I don’t think I witnessed a single interaction at the wedding where it didn’t look like two best friends having a great time.  This feeling carried over into everything on their special day and even though mother nature threw us all a little curveball, they would’t let her rain on their parade (pun intended?).  This was already one of our favorite weddings this year and we hope you all enjoy following along on this epic day!
