I'm Jessica Lauren - a wedding photographer for happy couples who are stoked about their wedding day! I couldn't be more thrilled that you stopped by! This is where I share bits and pieces of my passionate heart, spontaneous adventures, and pretty pictures of my rad clients! Feel free to grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile! xoxo
I’m just going to start this post off by saying that I’m sorry in advance for the overload of photos… but I’m also not THAT sorry, because these two are literal perfection, so their day was nothing short of that! Trying to find the words to sum up this day is going to be pretty difficult – so I’m going to let their photos do most of the talking. But friends, let me say this: there are wedding days that are all about the wedding – the details, the flowers, the money spent, the party. And then there are wedding days that are beautiful and magical, but ultimately about the forever commitment and marriage that is coming to fruition. The latter are the days my heart adores to be a part of, and the latter is exactly the kind of day that Matt and Flo had. The raw emotion, the elation, the heartfelt sobs of love and joy – it was so real and so powerful to not just document, but to witness. I legitimately cried as I edited some of the images because the emotion of the day was so REAL. Gosh, I love these two and I’m infinitely grateful I had the incredible honor of photographing their day.
Matt and Flo – I wish you guys the BEST as you begin this new journey together. I have no doubt that the two of you together will continue to be incredible world-shakers. Thanks for being you and enjoy this small peek into your incredible day!! <3
PS – A huge shoutout to the amazing vendors that helped make this day a reality!
