This was my first time photographing a wedding of a truly Italian family. Which means, I had the experience of being kissed by so many people I have never met. And I was threatened with my life to sit and eat, which is something I rarely do at a wedding. And I had loving grandmothers, take my hands, look me in the eye and speak perfect Italian to me, which I do not understand one bit. And that 11pm I was still photographing a crazy room of people.
I am so blessed to be able to do this for a living.
Sarah and Ezio are so full of life that when you spend 10 minutes with them, you walk away with a bounce in your step. I am so thankful they got married in December, I would have collapsed to heat exhaustion trying to keep up with them, their friends and family if they had a summer wedding. After photographing their engagement session, after spending time with me in meetings and seeing them at another wedding I photographed as guests and then spending 15 hours with them on their wedding day, I know this. Nothing brings them more joy than to make those people around them happy. They will give the shirt of their back in a heartbeat if it would make you smile.
Sarah and Ezio, as you on the beach sipping your drinks and toes in the ocean, please know this. I hope you, your family and friends see the joy they have created in the people near them. I am so grateful to you for letting me the guy to tag along on your wedding day!
