Suzzell and I went to middle to school together, but I hadn’t been in touch with her in forever, so when she contacted me about photographing her oldest son Julian’s third birthday I was beyond elated!
Julian’s birthday party was immensely imaginative and fun. All the food, decorations and goody bags were perfectly on pointe with the construction theme. Julian had a blast and I loved being able to snap shots while everybody enjoyed themselves!
One of my favorite things about event photography is the amount of colorful candid photos you can capture if you just step back and watch people interact, it truly lends itself to some sweet memories.
I didn’t get into photography because I was into fancy gear, or was incredibly artistic – photography has clung to me since childhood because I love people. One of the things I adore about my job is meeting people and hearing their stories, and everybody appreciates a great love story.
When I saw the tender way Jason looked at Alex, and how she laughed at his jokes with her whole being their love wasn’t just clear, it was palpable. I have no doubt that these two will cherish each other for a lifetime.
