clay + paige // bissell tree house wedding photography

i could start this story by telling you how i was hired by clay + paige just ten days before their wedding. i could tell you the story of stuffing my face with a warm chocolate croissant minutes before meeting the bride for the first time, and how none of the hotel staff i encountered on my way up to the girls’ room told me about the giant glob of melted chocolate on my freaking chin…thanks guys, thanks a lot.
but the story i really want to tell you is the one about how authentic these two humans are. the story about how their wedding day surprised me over and over and over again, in all of the best ways. i will never in my life forget this day, and i will never forget how witnessing it made me feel and how it changed me. i’ll never forget how often i was reminded by them + their loved ones about what was truly important, and why they were all there to celebrate. it’s weddings and people like this where my passion for documenting stories lives and thrives.

clay + paige, it thrills me to no end that the stars aligned in the mysterious ways that they did and allowed us to make some art together. your love is magic, and it was an honor to be present for + pause the love that surrounded you both in that beautiful tree house on that beautiful day. may this day be one of so many more to come that remind you + the rest of us about what life is all about.
