When Maddie & Joel first approached me about photographing their wedding, I was ecstatic for a few different reasons. 1) They are fellow Miamians (#loveandhonor), 2), they radiate Jesus, and 3) they have some serious chemistry. Within minutes of their engagement session it became clear that they didn’t need much posing direction. These two were simply happy to just soak up every moment of being together, and their wedding day was no different.
One of my favorite moments from the day was when Maddie opened up a surprise gift from her soon-to-be husband, minutes before the ceremony. Maddie & Joel had met on a study abroad trip to Ghana a few years prior, and while they were there, they had read the book “Love Does” by Bob Goff (highly recommend by the way). When Maddie opened up the box she found an artfully crafted copy of the book, carved into the shape of Africa. I mean, well played, Joel. Such a sweet moment before Maddie walked down the aisle to her groom!
Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Griffith 🙂 Such an honor to be a part of your beautiful day!
