lindsay + ben: wedding

September 1, 2017

Ok. Lindsay put this wedding together by herself, in TWO months, while moving across the country to LA, and it was gorgeous. I was so honored to second shoot for Lindsey Zitzke for this beautiful day. MadSim Photography posted a quote from Jenna Kutcher a while back and it just rings so true about this day…

“The biggest thing no one knows about weddings, is that most of the time we don’t want to leave. We spend this precious day with your closest friends and families, inserting ourselves into these moments that we know you will cherish forever. We aren’t just a fly on the wall, we are invested, animated, emotional pieces of your wedding day puzzle. We hold grandma’s hand as she meets you for a photo, we play with your little nephew as he dances around, we see your mom blink back the tears as she zips your dress, and we are there when your dad refuses to let you go.

As we live and breathe and move through your day, we are pretending as if it is our own and documenting it in such a way that it will be impossible for you to forget it. The thing about being a wedding photographer is that at the end of the night when I hug you and say goodbye, I am secretly praying that this won’t be the last time our paths cross, because I have lived this entire day through your eyes and I never want to forget it or forget you.”

It is such a privilege to walk by your side on the most important day of your life. And really, I never want to leave. Especially this wedding. Scroll down to see all the beauty.
