{Cincinnati Nature Center Wedding} – Jasmine & Brandon

Before their wedding, I had never met Jasmine and Brandon.  It’s always a little scary when you go into a wedding without knowing how the couple will react in front of your camera.  Since they live in San Francisco (so jealous!), I didn’t get to shoot an engagement session before hand.  If you’ve ever met with me, you know that I am a full supporter of the engagement session!  Not only does it allow you to get to know me better and see how I shoot, but it allows me to figure out how you two will interact in front of the camera. As with anything else, practice makes perfect. Plus, you get to kiss a lot. And kissing is fun.  Anyway, I digress…

When I arrived at the gorgeous Cincinnati Nature Center (one of my favorite Cincinnati venues), I had no idea what to expect.  Were they going to be awkward? Would they not want to kiss in front of the camera? (yep, that happens sometimes) What if they think my jokes are stupid? (They usually are). I was so silly to worry.  If there were ever two people meant to love one another, it’s these two.  Beautiful people inside and out, their love is apparent to all.  They were so comfortable with each other, it was as if I wasn’t there with a camera in their faces.  But I am so happy that I was.  In a world full of depressing news, snarky remarks & almost constant negativity, I was reminded of why I love to shoot weddings.  For those hours that I am with you, documenting this wonderful day – that part of the world doesn’t exist.  Weddings are a nice little escape…

Jasmine & Brandon used her parents’ cake topper – what a sweet detail!

Look at those handsome guys!

And Jasmine is beyond beautiful…

& we had some gorgeous light…

Jasmine & Brandon – Thank you so much for sharing these special moments with me. Your friends and families are so wonderful – you two are very lucky!  Congratulations and much love!

xoxo,

Amanda
