It’s a Monday morning, and boy do I have a spoonful of joy for you to help start the week. This couple, Anderson and Laura, were so completely joyful on their wedding day. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such unbridled excitement from a wedding couple during their first look. I always feel lucky to do my job, but this was one of those times when I feel like I got to experience something special and unique.

Before we did the first look in the courtyard outside the Church of the Redeemer, we wanted privacy, but that didn’t stop the family from sneaking a peek. How freakin’ adorable are they??

 

When they did get to see each other, they just BUBBLED with joy, excitement and love. Doesn’t everyone kind of wish their spouse would look at them with this kind of elation?

Then, they took a moment to take in each other’s attire, including his socks.

We did a few pictures of the two of them, and the entire time they just BEAMED at each other. Nothing makes me happier than getting to capture true joy.

And then, I went to take a few photos of Laura by herself. That part is normal.

But THEN … I glanced over at Anderson, and the way he was looking at Laura, was so beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes. And hers. Such adoration and so much love.

It’s just such a blessing to get to see a couple like this.
