Photographing Tina & Jared’s wedding at The Oaks at Oak Plantation was a true honor. Family is very important to these two and they spent a lot of time thinking out the logistics of the day. Their attendants were specifically picked by Tina – her nieces, and escorted by their fathers. Tina wanted for her young nieces to have moments with each of their fathers so that they could get a personal idea of what it would be like to walk down the isle on their own wedding day. She loves her family so much, and as the youngest and only girl of many brothers, you could tell that they wanted this to be a super special day for their baby sister.
I experienced firsthand an incredibly gentle and patient person in Jared. He loves Tina so very much and you can visibly see this. His communication with her, the way he places his hand on her arm, his ability to be calm when their adorable fur children are going haywire, how he’s always watching out for her and even when she signs them up for pictures every few months! 😉
Tina & Jared decided they wanted to take their engagement pictures in Aspen last November. You may or may not know that flying in and out of Aspen is sketchy due to weather, so it’s best to fly in nearby-or Denver-which is what we did. It’s a 4 hour drive. A bit long but gorgeous, and it also gave us so much time to tell more about ourselves. We laughed, we cried and the walls came down. It was so good to bond with these two.
Love isn’t always easy. It is a choice that you make every single day. I pray that God holds these two close to Him and to each other.
