We’ve known Emily longer than most brides we get to work with. First, we knew her by reputation (Em is a dear friend of my sister’s and the Creative Director of our favorite wedding magazine and blog, Southern Weddings). Then we got to capture her at work HERE. Over time, we’ve come to have a tremendous amount of respect for Emily’s creativity, poise, and leadership in our industry. So even before meeting John we knew he must be incredibly special to have matched with a gal as great as Em. Our hunch proved correct, and as John’s best man will eloquently point out in this film, the effect of their greatness is multiplied when they are together. We first got to know John over breakfast at Fosters in Durham, and a chat about hiking (namely his awesome blog, John Takes A Hike), music choices, babies (ours, not theirs) and their relocation to the South. Meeting their families in Connecticut this September solidified our admiration for our new friends; we are now officially big “John & Emily” fans, like so many others we met at their wedding!
John + Emily,
Thank you for allowing us into your lives and choosing us to capture such beauty (you truly planned an awesome event!) and important moments. We are inspired by your faith, your ability to evolve individually and as a couple over so many years together, and the joy you two bring to those who know you. We’ll look forward to some fun together in the (near!) future!
