I was so happy to do Ruth and Alex's wedding. They are a great couple! I loved them from back when I did their engagement session at the same place as their wedding venue. The Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, Virginia. The two of them compliment each other so well. Ruth does a little bit more of the talking, but Alex totally balances things out. They are both very kind, and laid back. We were able to chat a lot during the engagement session as we walked around the gardens. I have to say my favorite thing about Ruth and Alex is how real they are. Ruth wasn't about hair extensions and a ton of makeup on either day...They were all about being themselves and showing that real, raw, and natural love for one another. I have already told so many people about them. How when I would put them in a pose and they would just laugh at each other, Alex would kiss her on her forehead, or wipe away a happy tear during the first look. Honestly that is when I as a photographer have the best time. I could feel the love they had for one another just through the lens, not through them having to tell me a long story= I saw the story...Their wedding had a little bit of a Disney touch to it, since they love Disney and went to Disney World for their honeymoon! I have to say some of my favorite moments from their special day was...
I want to make sure I thank Amanda Bentley Photography for being my second shooter and helping out a lot throughout the day and night. Congratulations Alex and Ruth I am so excited for you, and wish you nothing but the best in your future together!
