I’ve had the opportunity to photograph some very small weddings with only family and close friends present. Kristi and Jakob’s wedding was one of those intimate ceremonies where I stand there humbled, not only be there, but also to be documenting and making images that I know will be shared with family members and friends beyond those in attendance. Kristi lived and studied in Germany where she met and fell in love with Jakob. She’s American and he’s German. Before the wedding day, his family came and stayed with hers and Kristi and Jakob became the interpreters as the their families got to know each other. It was very sweet to see everyone together as they prepared for the ceremony at the bride’s childhood home. Witnessing and photographing two days of celebration with this couple and their lovely families and friends was an honor. Below are some of my fave images.
