Jorge and I are friends, but we have also had the pleasure of collaborating on work together. He's a remarkable Chef (and a James Beard nominee, in fact!) that the Midwest is lucky to have. A couple of months ago, we were texting about a work thing and he replied, "I'm sorry - I'm going to have to get back to you. I think my future wife just walked into the room." A couple of weeks later I received another text asking if I could shoot their wedding in May! When I met Jill for the first time and saw Jorge with her, I knew they had something really special. Turns out, that whole love-at-first-sight-thing is real for these two!
Photographing their wedding was really an honor. I talk about how powerful it is to witness a couple's love on their wedding day as a photographer, but the simplicity and realness that Jorge and Jill brought to their day was also incredibly refreshing. The time that was spent with their closest family and friends, along with the moments of their day were truly remarkable and it was so wonderful to be a part of!
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Guzmán! I am so very happy for you!
