This morning ⛅️ as I went for my daily bike ride I was watching the sunrise over the reservoir and it triggered so many warm memories from all the sunrise shoots we’ve had over the years…waking us super early to get to a certain spot for that epic light, too many memorable shoots to mention! Whether it was out to places like France , Jeju island , Sumba, Bali, , Japan , Great Ocean Road , or even the many times close by here just at Coney Island , or on wedding days for countless amazing bridal party sessions, I just felt so overwhelmed a bit thinking about these experiences because it all came flooding back at once.
Usually weddings are a year round thing so I don’t often get downtime to reflect on everything that’s happened, but this morning I did, and it just made me realize that all these shared experiences with our couples at such a bright moment in their lives is so precious yet so fleeting. Some of them, we never see them again and we move in with our lives but always look back and think of the wedding moments fondly. Some of them, we have forged incredible friendships with and still keep in touch 5-10 years later, and some of them, we were friends with already but become even closer because of it.
Just makes me realize that the moments we get to share with our couples are just so meaningful to us as photographers and videographers. . And whether you as one of our couples realizes it or not, you’ve impacted our lives and given us a gift in something so incredibly touching to look back on and makes us appreciate even more so the chance to do what we do! : @darrenandjade
