Jake & Candice's


Funny story... I actually went to high school with Jake. We have had MANY a drunken night at house parties but as high school ended we went separate ways however we of course had good ol' facebook to keep us in touch!

SO when I received an email one day from Jake wanting to book me for his wedding I was STOKED!

NOT TO MENTION their wedding plans were this killer backyard wedding with a food truck and a First Look! 

Jake and Candice decided to do a First Look prior to their ceremony, and I am a huge advocate for these. It's all well and good to have that moment at the top of the aisle but before you know it, you're both standing there and the celebrant is talking and that exciting emotional moment is forcibly gone whilst you focus on the ceremony. With a First Look, when you see each other the rest of the world melts away and you get time to really just soak each other up and hug and kiss all you like. All of those warm and fuzzies get to be felt and when you are ready, then we do all your portraits whilst you're extra loved up!

It honestly makes the day go so much smoother and relaxing and in this case, we got to head out again as the sun was setting for a few more photos which was totally worth it!

Oh and anyone looking to hire a food truck seriously look no further than Mr Burger because one word: DELICIOUS!
