Jadie and Chris’ wedding was my first wedding photography booking after months of Covid cancellations and postponements. Since Jadie’s first email, I just knew this wedding was going to be extra special. They had their trip to Costa Rica planned with their closest friends for a while, and when the date got closer, they decided it would be a great time and place to actually elope!!! Jadie is a super talented wedding photographer in Utah, and the fact that she wanted me to photograph her own wedding was a true honor. As a photographer, I know how strange it can feel to be in front of the camera for a change … and being able to let go of that control for her big day, meant so much to me.
Since our first conversation, Jadie and Chris trusted my advices, and even the beach selection! I sent them over some recent wedding galleries, and they were pretty clear with what they wanted, and along with an amazing group of talented vendors, we were able to make their dream wedding come true. The 3 of us met days before, and went down the beach together, analyzed all the possibilities and chose the exact ceremony spot. Something I loved about this spot, is that compared to most of the weddings we do, their altar wasn’t facing the beach/ sunset, it was actually facing a natural path of palm trees which I absolutely loved how it turned out!
At the moment we arrived, big smiles welcomed us in. Jadie and Chris’ intimate group of friends were amazing, and I never get tired of saying this, brides & grooms: surround yourself with positive, fun-loving people on your wedding day! Specially before the ceremony!!! Amazing bridesmaids and groomsmen elevate the couple’s wedding day experience to the next level. And this group made the day run smoothly and fun! Every detail was taken care of by them , so Jadie and Chris could focus on enjoying each minute, stress free!
To top this wedding day, we had the most MAGICAL sunset! The light from start to finish was everything I could’ve asked for. After some rainy afternoons, we welcomed back the sun, which complemented Jadie and Chris’ love so perfectly!
