At Eva and Tom’s reception, I felt like I was at a true Polish zabawa! There was so much energy being funneled into the room via the lively band and guests that it was hard to not throw my camera to side and join the fun (totally joking!). But in all seriousness, what a fantastic time it was and definitely a most memorable one. Another beautiful event to tuck away in my memory hold to reflect back on years down the road.
Earlier in the day, I remember telling Eva at some point that one of my favorite photos that I had captured in my ten years of shooting was from their engagement shoot. It wasn’t about scenery, about the location, or even the light. In that photo, I loved everything about them and what it reflected back to me. Natural, blissfuly happy, and hearts full of love. These photos above imbibe all that goodness and then some more. Because when you are surrounded by your circle of adoring ciocie, wujkowie, cousins and siblings and let’s not forget dear friends, how can it not grow ten fold?
Eva and Tom – thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts for having us share in your day. Never was a moment less than perfect – nothing more could have been added! Keep your smiles full, your laughter free and your hearts full just as they were on your special day. All the best wishes and love from us,
