I mean… could they be any cuter? I don’t think so.
I can’t tell you what an honor it was to get to photograph Mark & Marissa’s wedding. First, because they are just wonderful people. Second, because this was my second wedding in this family. What a compliment to be trusted to tell the story of not one, but two of the most important days in this family’s life.
But mostly, it was just an honor to be there and witness the love between these two. The vows, which they wrote themselves, were just beautiful. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house when Mark teared up as he said his vows. My friend Karey, who was shooting with me that day, said, “Seeing how they are with each other makes me even more excited to get married.” I couldn’t agree more.
I had never been to Liberty Station, but it was really cool. The North Chapel, built in 1942 by the US Navy, was absolutely charming. Such a cool place for a wedding.
Mark & Marissa decided to see each other before the ceremony, which gave us plenty of time to get lots of great photos of the two of them.
Right before Mark & Marissa were to recite their vows, which they had written, the pastor said, “Mark, do you remember how I told you that at least one thing would go wrong today? Well, do you happen to have the copy of your vows on you?” When Mark said no, the pastor had to run to his bag to get them! Luckily it wasn’t far and I was in my stealthy sniper position and got a shot of it!
Thank you, you two, for having me. I think you’re both great and it was such a joy to be a part of your day.
