As much as I love a big wedding, there is just something so sweet and lovely about an elopement. All the details are simplified down to only those of the utmost importance for the couple. In this case, all Amaya and David needed were each other, a bright and colorful bouquet and the very talented Kelly Lorenz Imagery to photograph their intimate arboretum elopement.
The Couple: Amaya and David
The Wedding: 5.12.12 - Arnold Arboretum
The Photographer: Kelly Lorenz Imagery
Junebug: What three adjectives best describe your wedding?
Amaya and David: Affectionate, promising and fun.
Junebug: What inspired your decision to elope?
Amaya and David: It was a decision that arose naturally while trying to plan a larger wedding. The thought of having an intimate ceremony really resonated with both of us, and ultimately it was exactly the way we wished to celebrate our union!
Junebug: Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding?
Amaya and David: We were so grateful to have a wonderful photographer that not only served as a witness, but as a taxi after we missed our airport taxis. We were departing for our honeymoon directly after our ceremony, and having missed our taxis we were very appreciative that Kelly was able to take us. And now, one of our favorite photos is the one of us in a suit and wedding dress entering the airport terminal! Our wedding was truly unique and representative of who we are as individuals and a great reflection of our relationship. We loved the way our memories have been captured on film.
Junebug: What specifically drew you to Kelly Lorenz and her imagery?
Amaya and David: Having looked at other photographers, Kelly's portfolio which included both traditional and quirky wedding photography drew us to her. Upon meeting her, it was clear that she was a passionate photographer and a truly lovely person. Having such an intimate ceremony made the decision of which photographer to use not only about their skill but also their character. It was truly a pleasure to have Kelly around while we were getting ready! She made us laugh and captured truly intimate moments on film.
