When we sat down to write this post, we thought we’d write something new, something fresh, something that hadn’t been said about these two that just had to be mentioned; and then we re-read what we wrote after their engagement session 11 months ago, and we realized that sometimes the best things that have already been said about people shouldn’t be re-written. They deserve to be repeated.
Dinka and Dan are the embodiment of trust. The way he holds her, and the way she lets him. The way she laughs, and the way he looks at her. The way they are together every single minute. When the camera is clicking, and when it’s not. From the moment we met Dinka and Dan, they trusted us, too. We gave them permission to be themselves, and they gave us permission to document it. We trusted each other, we fell together, and the camera caught them… falling in love all over again. Dinka and Dan, we had so much fun with you because you reminded us of how much fun life is when you trust. When you laugh. When you love. And, after all, the best way to be swept off your feet is by the very same person who’s going to catch you.
Dinka and Dan, from the moment we arrived on your wedding day, you were both just a magnified version of what we wrote above. You smiled and had fun. You kept the right perspective. The day was about celebrating. It was about love. You treated everyone around you with kindness and hospitality. You were warm. You were welcoming. There almost aren’t enough words to describe just how you were. But, in short, you were great. You trusted us with every place and pose. You made us feel like family. You made us feel loved. If you got married every day, we’d be there to shoot it, because you both just have this way of making everyone around you feel like they’re exactly where they’re supposed to be.
Dinka told us at the beginning of the wedding day that she’d already made a special request for Gangnam Style. Once it started playing, she grabbed Amy and they tore up the dance floor! It was the perfect way to end a perfect night.
