I just want to start this out by saying that Colleen and Joe are one the most precious couples I have met. When I met them at their engagement session earlier this year, they were so sweet, easy to talk to, and very easy to photograph because of their completely natural love for one another.
Between their engagement session and their wedding, my favorite shots of Colleen and Joe have consistently been the totally candid ones. They are a beautiful couple at any moment, but when they are being completely candid and not even paying attention to the camera, what I have been able to capture is so intimate. It's just the way they look at each other like they are the only people on the planet, and like they have never been happier than they are in that moment.
During the wedding their emotional love for each other was very apparent. It was beautiful and refreshing to see a couple so happy and truly in love.
At the beginning of the reception, Joe made a speech to Colleen in front of everyone vowing his love to her and only her forever, and promising to always make time for and enjoy the simple things in their life together; of course walking their sweet little dog together was on the top of the list. (And I'll be honest, I was kneeling on the floor to capture these shots with tears in my eyes.)
I'm happy to have been able to capture this day for these sweet sweet people. Congratulations, Fairless'!
