Francisco + Maggie

Francisco and Maggie. They trekked all the way from Seattle, Washington to Ann Arbor, Michigan to share their wedding day with 55 of their closest friends and family from all around the country. When I say share, I truly mean it in every sense of the word. These are two of the most kind, selfless people I've ever had the opportunity to photograph. I met them on their wedding day for the very first time, and immediately the warmth and care was just beaming out of them. They took in Michael and I as if we were part of the family for that day. It was such an absolutely special experience. I asked them why they chose to keep it small, to do it near Maggie's hometown, to not have a bridal party. Maggie said they opted to keep it intimate and have no bridal party because they didn't want anyone to feel like they HAD to come; they HAD to travel across the country or HAD to buy a suit or dress to stand up in the wedding. They just wanted people to genuinely want to share in the day with them. To celebrate and turn a new leaf in each of their lives. That's what this is all about you guys. That's the reason we get married and have a wedding in the first place. It's not the lights or the venue or the perfect decorations. It's the people. That's why I do this.

Huge special thanks to one of my favorite friends and second shooters, Michael Newsted for knocking out two weddings with me in this weekend. He's pretty dang talented.
