I asked them to show me what their first dance would look like, and they both started laughing, claiming they need to practice. But the thing is… the first dance isn’t a performance. It’s about love and connection. I love photographing a couple’s first dance because I love seeing their natural connection: how they gaze into each other’s eyes, how they communicate without words, and how they share quiet giggles. Kira and Phil? They have that connection down pat. And equally important, there is so much love and mutual respect between these two.
Undoubtedly, COVID-19 forced a change of plan that no bride or groom welcome. But, Kira and Phil made the most of it. They re-arranged and postponed their wedding to meet safety guidelines while also making sure they get to celebrate their love on May 15 all the same. Because when you’ve found your soulmate, you don’t need to wait until your wedding day to celebrate. 🙂 Let’s celebrate love every day, and let’s capture beautiful memories in the process.
Kira and Phil – A lot has happened since you met almost six years ago, non? Becoming corgi parents. Building a brand new house. And living through a pandemic together. While I ardently hope you will get your destination wedding in October, I know that whenever and wherever your wedding takes place will not matter nearly as much as the beautiful life you guys are (already) building together. You’re rocking this coupling thing and I can see so much joy and love in your upcoming married life! ❤️
