It was a cooler day when I sat down to meet Whitney and her father in a Starbucks coffeeshop. I remember Whitney coming in and looking around trying to spot me. After greetings, we sat down, she told me what she was hoping for, she looked over my photos and I remember her saying that the colours were what she wanted, warm and golden, just the way she shone on her day.
Golden and beautiful, as she got ready, it was clear. She couldn't stop smiling, no worries, though, because no one else could, either. She was all smiles and laughs with nervous excitement strung here and there, always wanting to make sure she was doing everything just as she should, but really, already doing everything perfectly, because this was her day, and however she did it was exactly and perfectly how it was supposed to be.
When I asked how Jordan proposed, Whitney's eyes crinkled and she gave me the biggest smile, truly happy, you could tell that this story was unique and very special to her. "I like cows," she stated, and she proceeded to tell their story; how he took her to tour a farm, and at the end of it, he pulled out a stunning ring and asked her to be his, for forever.
I arrived to the venue on September 22nd of this year, and as soon as I stepped out of the car and saw Jordan and his groomsmen in nervous excitement walking around outside the venue, and then Whitney excitedly getting ready surrounded by her girls, I could see how truthful and raw their proposal story was to the story they were just beginning. All throughout the day, I could see clearly that Whitney and Jordan were chosen to live this life together for good reason, they truly do complete each other in the most beautiful way, and it was my greatest honour to be able to tell their story through these images.
