This was a special wedding for me because the Wise family are good friends of mine and I was honored to be their photographer.
It’s interesting to me how many different types of love there are. Sometimes love is gentle and subdued, while other times it is warm and affectionate. As an onlooker, I would describe Joe and Rachel’s love as joyful and passionate.
They met in late August of 2010 at El Rey in Ventura. Some time after, they picked up all of their belongings and took a road trip to Colorado to begin a new chapter. Joe pulled over at the Colorado State line and proposed. I sat down with Joe + Rach several months before their big day to get to know their love on a more personal level.
IN JOE’S WORDS:
What three words would you use to describe your bride-to-be? > radiant, understanding, adventurous
What are you most excited about in your future life together? > Our future cabin in the Colorado Rockies.
IN RACHEL’S WORDS:
What three words would you use to describe your husband-to-be? > sincere, amazing heart, loyal
What are you most excited about in your future life together? > Traveling the world; eating, drinking, meeting new people; and starting a family down the road.
A big thank you to Jillian Rose Photography for helping me capture some beautiful images.
