Encinitas Wedding Photographer | Gretchen and Jason are Married

Over the last few years, as my work has changed and my focus has intensified, I’ve noticed patterns emerging.

More and more, the couples I feel most connected to are the ones who are willing to be real people, with raw emotions, and to do it in front of me. They’re people who are having a wedding because they realize how vital their support network is to the success of their relationship. They’re doing it because they want to formally invite the ones they love, and who love them, not only to share in celebrating one of the best decisions of their lives, but also to hold them accountable in the years ahead.

When I meet a couple who so clearly has that focus, who so clearly sees the many ways that their family and friends make life so very sweet, I know we’re going to do wonderful things together. I feel very grateful that I’ve been lucky to connect with so many people who are in just that place in their lives.

Gretchen and Jason are one of those couples. They’re living life absolutely on their own terms, and they’re forging their own path together with their children. The absolute joy on their faces, the way they mingled with their guests before the ceremony began, the excitement in the eyes of every single person present as they said their vows on a half pipe at a friend’s house, the spontaneous involvement of their son in their ring exchange; that’s what keeps me at this. That’s what helps me believe love is real and true and worth seeking out.

I hope you feel it, too.
