“I Mia, take you Ben to be my husband, my partner in life and my ONE true love.”
It’s always sheer joy when a photographer themselves, chooses me to capture their own wedding day. Not only is it humbling, but it is such a common ground that I feel we can communicate in a manner that only photographers can. Ben always made things clear and always made sure that he ended each and every sentence with “I want Mia happy”, Mia means “mine” in Spanish by the way…. I love it when a man says that maybe it’s the horrible romantic in me or just cause I am the plain ole “touchy feely kinda mooshy gal!”
When I first met Mia it was on a day she was absolutely beaming with elation, emotion and pure joy, not only was she beautiful she just glowed…and radiantly! I met them both on a very important day, yes, their wedding day! Usually I meet with clients beforehand and we get to know each other in meetings, telephone calls and several emails, which I relish. However, this was planned and before they knew it, it was time to find their photographer! Their San Francisco City Hall Wedding took place in 2010 in the gorgeous Landmark City Hall of San Francisco. We also got to meet Tofu, their fabulous little furry family member, which you will agree is absolutely a dapper himself!
Never once did I doubt that Ben and Mia would call me again once they were ready to plan and celebrate their reception vow renewal, and although we kept in touch by way of Christmas Cards, and Facebook, when the phone rang almost 2 years later, I was ecstatic! Finally, the moment we have all been waiting for…..THE PARTY!!! And boy oh boy, that is an understatement. See here how this amazing couple made this day special, unique, cultural and just plain WOW!
Thanks again for calling me and Wayne to capture this ever so important milestone, we had an absolute BLAST and we absolutely adore YOU BOTH!!! Congrats, many blissful wishes, and I look forward to keeping in touch! Enjoy your sneak peeks and enjoy your new lives together, as ONE!
