This post is gonna be a long one, so strap in and get ready!
One of my favorite and most humbling things is to photograph the weddings of people I went to high school with, and I’ve been excited about photographing Malachi & Whitney’s big day ever since I met with them last summer. Just sitting with them in a coffee shop, it was obvious just how in love with each other they are and how stoked they were for their journey to the altar. That excitement doubled after their Engagement session, and even more so after Whitney’s Bridal session! And then comes the wedding day… June 29, 2018. The sun was shining in full force with the heat index around 100 degrees. The bridal party and family members buzzed around excitedly, finishing hair and makeup, getting places during day of rehearsal, and maybe indulging in a shot or two to quell the nerves.
Despite the triple digit heat, friends and family gathered outdoors for a gorgeous, sun soaked ceremony. Mr. & Mrs. Naef included a unity cross into their nuptials and celebrated their union in the best way possible: a fist in the air during the first kiss! That was probably my favorite moment of the entire day.
Malachi & Whitney opted for a First Look (MY FAVEEEEE) and their reactions were pretty dang perfect.
The way you win over your pregnant photographer? Have a dessert bar. -insert heart eye emojis here-
Mr. & Mrs. Naef, your wedding day was a delight! You two were so easy to work with and made my job so much FUN. I wish you nothing but the best in married life. If anyone’s gonna make it ’til the end of time, it’s you two <3
