What a delight getting to know Jessica and Eric for their dreamy summer wedding at Kuiper's Family Farm in Maple Park! Jessica and Eric are two of the sweetest, most genuine people you will ever meet. Their smiles are contagious! Everyone was so relaxed and enjoying their celebration of love. Their family and friends were equally sweet, which really is no surprise. The pair surrounded themselves with the best.
One thing I'll never forget is when Jessica still reached out about wedding photography. She had been following me on social media for a while and was beyond excited it was finally her turn. After she booked she told me she was so excited to be a BJP Bride!!! Those words stuck with me and truly meant the world. She gave all of her trust to me for her special day. And the results were incredible!
For photography, their day did not follow the "typical" wedding day schedule. Originally that was the plan, however, they were flexible and willing to trust my judgement to pivot. End of July is hot, so in order to keep them as cool as possible we moved into what little shade their was, a brown and white wall. We did all of the wedding party portraits there, but then I asked the couple if we could hold off and do their portraits in the evening for a longer sunset portion. The property is stunning. I honestly could shoot there for hours. I wanted to be sure to capture it's beauty, especially since wildflowers were important to their wedding theme. Jessica and Eric said sure and I couldn't be happier the results.
Thank you for trusting my creative judgement. I have loved every minute of our time together. Congrats to you both!
