I am a very artistic person. I am quirky, a little funky, a lot of passion, and a little diva. But I have a dark little secret: ironically, the same qualities that I value in myself make me nervous if displayed in others. I think it’s the little diva hidden in me that fears being judged or told what to do…
Tonya and Ryan are very artistic and funky people. They are both involved in stage production, design and management and they both have a keen eye and wonderful aesthetic sensibilities. They know what they like, and they clearly had vision (her handmade pumpkin centerpieces were delightful and added a tremendous atmosphere to this Fall wedding). Did I mention that Tonya specializes in theatrical lighting? Lighting. My forte?!? Can you say: A little pressure? My “inner diva” can…
However, this wedding was yet another example as to why my “inner diva” needs to shut up. Yes, Tonya and Ryan are clearly artistic, and yes they clearly knew what they liked, but apparently I’m the only one whose artistic sensibilities come with a side of diva (or they’re really good at hiding it). Tonya and Ryan were perhaps the chillest and yet emotional couples we’ve seen in a while. There was laughing and crying, hugging and playing, kissing and teasing and all the while they were putty in our hands.
Having such a talented couple put such absolute trust in us and our abilities was a true honor and compliment.
Tonya and Ryan, thank you so much for the opportunity to capture your amazing day! Your trust for us and honest open love for each other made this day easy, special, and very very rewarding.
