Many years ago someone asked me how I knew that my husband was the one for me. And my answer was “I just knew”. It goes beyond explanation or logic when you meet the person who is your perfect match, your better other half. Kim & Chris are also that kind of couple.
Kim and Chris just celebrated there 1 year wedding anniversary. To commemorate the occasion we decided to re-create there wedding day by doing a trash the dress session. I asked them to tell what it was that they felt was important to know and they both shared with me there heritage and that they wanted to pay tribute to there cultural identity. For many reasons Balboa park, San Diego was the perfect place.
When you are a photographer you really notice the subtle things about how people interact with each other. You become trained to look for the small details.
Photographing Kim & Chris was like watching a love story in action. They complete each other to perfection. It was the small subtle things that were so present in our our shoot – He makes her laugh, and laugh often. He was protective of her in small ways, helping her with her dress or holding her hand. They would whisper so many little inside jokes resulting in laughs or kisses, I felt lucky to be a part of capturing who they are as a couple. They have unbelievable chemistry – that can not be faked.
Kim & Chris, happy 1st anniversary. More importantly, congratulations on finding the perfect partner to share your lives with, and thank you for letting me photograph that!
