There are so many types of weddings we can cover in our lifetime as photographers. Many fit within the comfortable confines of the expected: big wedding party, big celebration, ceremony with pomp and circumstance, family, friends, flowers, fanfare. All of it so wonderful, and meaningful and perfect. But then sometimes…. it’s only about the two people standing there in front of you, literally… with their officiant, and it can be anywhere. And it doesn’t matter. All that matters is their overwhelming desire to just.. be married and committed to each other with only the other as witness to their own private,  seemingly less obvious pomp and circumstance.

This to me, was exactly that. With families on separate sides of the world, Jennifer and Ash just wanted to be united. The parties and celebrations with family and friends will surely come later, of this I am quite confident. But for me, knowing I was the only one there seeing this, aside from the officiant and two sweet friends who’s beach front we used as our backdrop… the power of this was not lost on me, and I made sure to not only bear witness to their love with my camera, but with my heart as well.
