I’ve known Arto for close to 10 years, so when he and Amanda approached me last year about shooting their wedding, I was so excited!

There was so much joy on this day. I had such a good time along with their family and friends throughout the whole day. I even had the bridal party insist on me letting loose on the dance floor and having drinks during the getting ready shots in the morning. We sure did have a good time! The amount of love that their family and friends showered them with on their wedding day was so moving. The speeches from their loved ones were all so special. They really are blessed to have such a great group celebrating their love and new life together.

I put a lot of pressure on myself to make sure their wedding was perfect, but with the chemistry these two have, it wasn’t hard to capture their love behind the lens. I’m beyond honored that my friend asked me to capture the most important day of his life. What a beautiful gift it was being able to witness each moment, to let loose on the dance floor, and to share in all the smiles and laughter.

Amanda and Arto, I love you guys! My heart is so full knowing you found each other and that you both get to share your best life together. May your marriage be blessed with an abundance of love and great adventure! Also, big thank you to Maurizio Solis for coming out and shooting this wedding with me and totally rocking it! Here are a couple of my favorite images from the day.
