Leila and Austin’s wedding was the kind I would aspire to — small, intimate, authentic, fun, and full of heart and connection and real, deep love. It was such an honor to shoot it for them, and capture just a smidge of what was there that day. Their wedding was small — just 40 people, and in their favorite place — the backyard dock of Leila’s parent’s house at Lake Monticello near Charlottesville, Virginia. Leila arrived in a boat with her dad, much to Austin’s surprise. There were tears and laughter and speeches and some DOWN dancing. And such profound enjoyment and relaxation.
I feel lucky to get to be your eyes at these most important events, because then these memories become my own, too. Your stories become part of my fabric of what love is, what it can be, and how human connection works. Thanks, Leila and Austin and everyone, for making me part of your lives.
