I absolutely love working side by side with other photographers. When Erin Evangeline contacted me about this wedding at Founders Chapel I knew it was going to be amazing. 

Upon arrival I was greeted by the groom and began documenting his getting ready room. Hector and his groomsmen were so much fun to work with. They all joked about how to put on their ties and made sure that Hector looked his best for Kayla. When it was time for Hector to open his gift, I myself became emotional. His late mother loved butterflies and part of his gift was custom cuff links. 

Upon arrival to Founders Chapel they decided on a first look. Little did Hector know that his best man was going to surprise him in a wedding dress. The first look between him and Kayla was emotional and touching. I loved capturing all the emotion from their beautiful day.

As for Founders Chapel itself, well it is STUNNING! I loved taking detail photos of the architecture and of course the family. I loved how they both stood up and cheered for Kayla and Hector. You could feel their overwhelming love and support in the room.

Afterwards I went to Lot 8 to take some amazing venue photographs of the reception area. Bliss events did an amazing job of setting everything up. Each item was a perfect representation of Hector and Kayla. 

As everyone began to arrive and dance I was able to get some amazing photos of everyone’s entrances. My favorites though are a tie between their first dance and the emotional speeches by both of their sisters. They move me every time I look at them.

Hector & Kayla,

Thank you for letting me be a small part of your day. It was a pleasure working next to Erin and meeting you both. I pray for many years of happiness between the two of you. Stay safe and healthy!

With Love,
