Gus & Alma — Hammond, IN Wedding

A year ago today I only dreamt of someday being able to photograph couples' engagements, much less a wedding. So you can imagine my level of excitement/terror when I was asked to shoot my first wedding only a few months ago. Terror because I had never done anything like it, and excitement because I finally got the chance to do what I've wanted to do for so long

I met Gus and Alma for the first time during the middle of a snowstorm at a Starbucks. Despite the horrible weather, when they walked in, I was greeted with two big smiles and immense amounts of kindness. These two have such a noticeable, genuine love for God, for others, and for each other (which makes total sense, considering they've been dating for ELEVEN years prior to marriage)!! I don't know what it feels like to finally get married to the love of your life and your best friend after 11 years of waiting, but I think that the pure joy that I saw and captured from both Gus and Alma on their wedding day is a pretty good indicator of that. 

I was so honored to have been able to capture the day that they both waited so long for! So go ahead, start scrolling and see for yourself the incredible love that these two have for each other.
