Every wedding I’ve shot has a place in my heart, but this one is particularly special to me. I’ve known Matt since he was a kid. His sister is one of my oldest & dearest friends, and I spent the better part of my high-school years sneaking out of their parents house ( only to get caught, of course.. ;) There’s a soul connection that exists within this family that’s hard to put into words. They live life with their arms wide open, unafraid to fall, and I love them for it. The incredible heart Matt had as a kid has only grown bigger through the years. He is a loving son, supportive brother & now husband to one of the most amazing gals I’ve ever had in front of my lens. Elizabeth shares Matt’s passion for life, and their wedding day could not have been a more honest reflection of who they are as a couple. It was beautifully crafted, heartfelt, and most of all..sincere. There’s no doubt in my mind that they found their soul mate in each other. I’m just grateful I was there to see it all come together. Thanks to the Jalazo & Routh families for having me…lots of love to you all.
