it was that time again. time for me to try to stay focused. time to think about light, composition, and exposure. time to shine. but admittedly it was a big distraction that in this particular wedding the bride was amber, my older sister. yes. try staying focused while having herds of people you haven’t seen in years stop and want to have small talk, while you’re trying to find the bride and stick to a timeline. ask any photographer and they will tell you that family weddings are a big challenge. nonetheless, it is a challenge that we are happy to take. and so there i was, calling my friend and second photographer pablo a few weeks earlier so he could be my backup. i would surely need it.
amber and sergio married on may 22nd, 2016. friends and family flew in and drove from all over the world in order to witness their love become lifelong commitment. not without their struggles, in the last couple of years they both had stuck together through thick and thin. through health issues and an unemployment stricken country. but they remained standing, they remained together. and so it was in this beautiful small chapel, that they committed to forever love, former encourage, and forever be husband and wife. it was a very emotional ceremony followed by delicious food and the most ridiculous dancing you could imagine. courtesy of our spanish relatives, of course. and so it is with a certain sense of nostalgia that i want to congratulate them for everything they’ve accomplished, everything they are, and everything they will be. i love you guys!
