These two. Sometimes I ask myself why I’m so frequently present for some of the happiest and most memorable moments of people’s lives. Yes, I may have been asked to be someone’s photographer, but there are other times when it’s truly a privilege to be present for a few minutes of someone’s life. This is how I felt with Doug & Lindsey just moments after Doug popped a knee. Over the past few years my friendship with Doug has gone through a lot, and I’m happy and honored to call him a friend and brother. There are few people that have spoken such truth, both challenging and encouraging, into my life as Doug. If you’ve gotten to know him much, you can attest to his intentionality in relationships and conversations, something that’s hard to come by in a friend. Lindsey is just as great a person, and I’ve loved knowing her and seeing her and Doug’s relationship grow into what it is today; they balance and complement each other perfectly. I’m incredibly excited for their lives together, and I’m so glad I was asked to capture their engagement! [These two are just too cute, and I love their love for people!]
These two people are some of the smiliest, friendliest, and most loving people I know. If you’ve met either of them before, I’m sure you’ve experienced their amazing smiles and even greater hugs! These two have a genuine care for others, and as a friend, I was incredibly honored to be asked to photograph their wedding. Spending the day with them I was reminded how much Kevin and Kelly are cared for, and how much they show their care for others. The amazing group of family and friends present in the Briski backyard is what truly made this day so special. I’m sure this will be a wedding that sticks in my mind for quite some time.
Kevin and Kelly: thanks for being such an encouragement to us all!
