tk and i parked the car and were prepping our gear when i introduced myself to bruce. we hadn’t met before. i asked how he was feeling [i’m always nosy] and he shared with tk and i that he was driving over the bridge earlier that morning and just started crying because he was able to marry lin that day.
46 days before that moment, i received an email from lin asking if i had any last minute availability. i happened to have one weekend open in october and it was her day. lin is from israel and bruce is from the states. they were planning a low-key, intimate backyard wedding with their closest family and friends from all over the map. no bridal party. no posed photos. no posed family photos. just raw, real moments to be captured.
this wedding had a few features that stood out of any wedding this season: one, the father-of-the-bride is a professional hairdresser and styled the bride’s hair. two, none of the family photos or bridal party photos were posed at all. they were natural moments that i just stood back and captured as they unfolded. and three, the wedding dress was custom made by a friend out of lace collected by the mother-of-the-bride. also, it may be the number-four-out-of-six-kids in me, but lin is also one-of-six kids. which is always a recipe for a good time!
congratulations lin + bruce!
