i do: mariah + jason

mariah and jason may not have been a likely couple –a slight age difference and the fact that jason was/is friends with mariah’s dad–but when they met, it didn’t take long for either of them to realize they were playing for keeps. mariah knew so well, in fact, that she saved the shot gun shells from the first time jason took her hunting and had them made into cuff links for his wedding gift. she just knew…

mariah+jason’s day was filled with so many personal touches, like the cuff links, that my heart was exploding with gratitude that i was the one who got to photograph them all. from the hand crafted benches made by jason and his dad, to the hand made branding irons, also made by jason’s dad, used instead of unity candles, you couldn’t not feel the love and connection between these two.

thank you, mariah+jason, for picking me to capture your day. it was so wonderful, just like the two of you.
