In My Own Words

Writing and Images from the heart...

Git + Ryan | Married | Springfield Museums, Springfield, Massachusetts

There are a few words that come to mind when I think of Git + Ryan. Of all the words in the universe, Genuine, thoughtful, and kind are probable the biggest ones. They both have great big smiles and find happiness and joy in everything. When you’re around them you can feel their positive energy, and its infectious. Now, I didn’t have the pleasure of meeting Ryan until their wedding day. I had no idea what he looked like, or what his personality was, but when I met him it was like I had known him forever. Their day was a celebration that I won’t soon forget. It was my first time photographing a wedding with Venezuelan traditions, and it was so much fun! (Can we do it again?!)

I walked with Git, her family, and her friends from the Sheraton Hotel downtown, to their church. It created a unique opportunity for some wonderfully candid images of Git downtown, and enjoying some laughs with her nieces. These two chose their family church, and exchanged vows at St. Michael’s Church in Springfield, Massachusetts. Religion is very important to them, and their ceremony reflected their connection through moving readings, and tears of joy shared by many in the church. Afterwards we made our way for some photos in front of the Springfield Library, and then headed into the Springfield Art Museum for a toast. As you can see, it created a beautiful and intimate environment for cocktail hour to take place before heading to their formal reception at the History Museum.

Throughout their reception these two spent time visiting with family, and catching up with people they hadn’t seen – Until the celebration began that is! So much dancing, laughter, and and just all out celebration. Their Crazy Hour was perhaps the most fun to photograph. With Git and Ryan leading the conga line and wearing bright colorful hats and props, they danced their way through the museum with a train of family and friends behind them. It was so much fun to photograph all the amazing facial expressions on everyone. The pleasure really was truly ours!

Here are my favorites from their amazing day!


I’m so glad that I was able to meet you both! I wish you all the happiness in the world! CONGRATULATIONS!!
