I think it was Jojit, their coordinator, who said that it’s interesting how Jon looks different in photos with Rachel, more carefree and happy, and I get that. We first met them over lunch in Greenbelt, and Jon struck me as someone quiet and serious. But seeing their travel photos and actually taking pictures of them together, it’s amazing how he lightens up so much around her. Rachel’s so full of life, and she really just lights up every room she’s in. And in a way, I think Jon keeps Rachel centered and grounded. They complement each other so beautifully.
These crazy kids tied the knot a bit over a week ago. And when we say crazy, we do say it with utmost affection. These people know how to party. Lots of favorites in this wedding, particularly: the print of a watercolor painting of the proposal in Japan made by the couple’s friend (Paulina Ortega), Rachel’s crazy dance, the mother and daughter hug, a photo of one of the most animated brides inside a car that I’ve shot in quite some time, and the rockeoke at the reception. And so much more, really. Jeff and I usually try to trim it down to 60 photos per wedding to make it easier to load online, but I couldn’t bring myself to remove any more photos here. I’m way too attached to these now. Hope you guys enjoy them as much as we did taking them.
Jon and Rachel, we had such a blast at your wedding! Hope you’re having the time of your lives in Japan. Happy honeymooning, lovebirds!
