Jared majored in Photojournalism in college (hallelujah!), and Chris reached out to me saying, "we are looking for a photography that isn't your typical wedding expert. We want more documentary and less posed/staged group shots. We are truly looking for in the moment photography...candid, unscripted, and a bit unruly. Our wedding guest list is a cast of characters and you'd have a great time shooting them!" Boy, he was right! Brett and I loved hanging out with their groomsmaids, documented their wedding story, and partied until the end.
Though, Jared is not a photojournalist but a successful entrepreneur, and Chris is a prominent publicist. The couple lives in Bay area and it was (personally) so fun and an honor planning their wedding together because they initially did not have a wedding date set. They had known that they wanted to get married Carondelet House in Los Angeles, so their date was finalized on the venue's availability and mine. (I know!) I often get asked what part of the wedding day is my favorite and (you guessed it right) I can't pick one. I can say though, that they're usually moments when I witness different types of love from friends and family.... which you'll get to see about Chris and Jared as images below. :D
