As far as blog posts go, this would have to be one of the hardest I have had to write. Where do you begin, and what do you say when you have so much to say. Destination weddings are always a good idea when it comes to escaping the winters of Melbourne. But this one was extra special. Santorini is one of the most popular islands in Greece where people travel from all over the world to exchange their vows. It’s beautiful white washed buildings and blue skies make for a perfect backdrop.
But this is where the anomaly lies. No backdrop or scenery could take your breath away like Paige in her Oglia Loro Couture Gown Jake didn’t stand a chance. What was most evident when photographing this gorgeous couple is the love that they have for each other. Childhood sweethearts, most would say it was a long time coming. Almost 10 years together, they have shared their fair share of ups and downs as they transitioned from young adults to the couple they are today.
I started this post by saying how hard it is for me to write this particular blog post. Not because of the lack of things to say, which is normally the case for me, but what do I leave out and what do I include. I make no apologies for the long winded sentiments that I am about to write, but sometimes we can’t expect to express ourselves with a hashtag or an @ symbol to truly embody what the heart wants to say. Hopefully the photos in the slideshow and stills below will echo the feelings I have for this family.
I have known Jake and his family for quite some time and Paige was always a part of his life as long as I have known him. It is impossible not to fall in love with them. This is where I substitute the details to the now. A rare quality of people where, you feel like you’re the only person in the world to them, when you’re speaking with them. Respectful, warm and genuine. If I were to hashtag three words for this beautiful couple. Thank you for truly entrusting us to capture your story, for this is the ultimate for us. Love you guys
