When I met Gina and JR for the first time, I knew right away I wanted to photograph their wedding. They had applied for a spot on my "Big Heart" program and after seeing these two together and hearing the details about their life, I was already looking foreword to capturing their day. Gina spends her free time as a volunteer mentoring youth with disabilities. Her passion for her work in this community and her insatiable smile was only eclipsed by the connection she had with JR. As she spoke about her plans, I could see the patience and support in JR's eyes. I knew, their wedding day was going to be full of these moments and I couldn't wait to capture them on film.
As always, a big thanks to all of the wonderful vendors to helped realize Gina and JR's vision for their wedding.
