March 14, 2020
Joe and Ally had such a fun, chill and relaxed day on the Saturday of March 14, 2020. This is definitely a weird time in our history, as COVID spreads around the states, it’s leaving many weddings and events in question. Ally and Joe lucked out as the state wasn’t on complete shut down then. However, there are some moments during this wedding that I couldn’t resist to capture to really show the times. Wedding photography can be romantic, it can tell the fairytale day, but it’s also documentation. And during strange times like this, it’s more of my job to document the story rather than portray it something that it’s not.
The wedding had fairytale Disney vibes and a lot of family love.
From Ally, “I knew of Joe when I was in elementary school, but our paths didn’t really meet back then since we have a 4 year age gap. In 2008, when I was in junior high, he was a senior in high school, and he stopped me in the hall to tell me a joke about my brother (who is closer to his age). I was confused as to why a senior was even talking to me, and Joe has no recollection of that conversation, however he remembers the joke. I even remember adding him on facebook around that time too. Fast forward a few years to 2015, as I was swiping on Tinder, I came across a familiar face and it was him. We talked for a while on there before I made the first move to exchange phone numbers and set up our first date. I find it funny that we kind of met on Tinder 4 years ago, but we’ve been friends on facebook for 11 years.’
