Oh, where do we even begin with these two? With thank you. That’s where. Because when we think about Sandra and Ryan, we think about exactly what it means to be an AJ Bride and an AJ Guy. From the first day we met them (and every day after that) they reminded us why we love our job so much. Why it doesn’t feel like “work” at all. Because it’s not work to love and serve people who are joyful and grateful and trusting; who care more about others than themselves; who smile easily; who love life; who love each other; and no matter how stressful the wedding process gets, who never forget — not even for a second — what really matters most. Is it fun to photograph glitz and glam? You bet. And they had it. But do you know what’s more fun? Photographing people who also have hearts of gold. Because if we could weigh theirs, they’d be 24-carat.

Sandra and Ryan, thank you, from the bottom of our heart, for yours. We smiled through every step of your wedding day. You’re the kind of clients we’d run through walls for — and stand on dangerous rock formations for, as you found out. It’s worth it! For you! we said more than a few times last weekend. And it was. We’ll miss talking about our cats together and outnumbering Amy three-to-one with (slightly)
inappropriate jokes. But we’ll never forget our time together. We couldn’t. Because at a time when we should’ve been tired from this or that, you gave us a double dose of energy and fresh burst of life — because you bring so much of both everywhere you go. We love you both to the moon and back, and we hope you love seeing your love through our eyes as much as we loved seeing it for ourselves.
