Summer is typically 100% portrait season for us. We love spending it meeting new clients, visiting with long-time friends, soaking in the sunshine as we go. On the rare occasion, we decide to take on a summer wedding - but only for the right couple. Sidney and Josh are most definitely the most special and most right couple for which to brave the summer heat.

When Sidney and Josh contacted us to photograph their wedding, we knew that it would be a different than any other wedding we have photographed. Let us count the reasons:

1) We have known Josh since he was in high school. He and his family have been a such a joy to know for years, and Josh has always been a bit of an old soul.

2) Josh and Sidney both serve in the military (Sidney is a Military Intelligence Officer and Josh is an armor officer). This means that several people in the wedding party and attending the festivities were not to be messed with (As one of the bridesmaids said to me at one point, “I can take bullets, but I can’t take people.”). A-type personalities. High expectations. A lot of graciousness.

3) We traveled to Savannah, GA for this wedding. Needless to say, it was probably the hottest wedding we have ever photographed. A trillion percent humidity. Unpredictable rainfall. The feeling of standing on the sun. You get the idea.

All that being said, this wedding was beyond memorable. Sidney and Josh are just bursting with love for each other. It was infectious. Their families were kind and celebrated together as if they had known each other forever. So much laughter. So many happy tears.
