Awwwwwww, I’ve known Joy’s family for a long time. Her brother is my classmate and I’ve known him since elementary school. Her older brother and I also go way back — those stories for another day! :) I’ve always thought of Joy as “little Joy”, you know, Ray and Brendan’s little sister. Imagine my shock when she asked me to photograph her wedding! Little Joy is now taller than me (like wayyyyyyy taller!) and oh so beautiful… she and Grant are just the cutest! I also have NO idea what Joy is doing these days but she needs to be a stylist because she picked out the best outfits. As I told her, “nice eye-popping complimenting colors but not matchy matchy”.
Ummmmm, can I say Anthropologie ad? Love. this. picture.
I made them hike through a wild field of pokey branches to find a shady spot. Once there, I made them move around to find the perfect light. Right next to them was some soiled diapers and wipes. Not kidding!
The rain held off, we had lots of fun and I can’t wait for their big day in 2012!
