I had the sense that I was capturing what it actually *feels* like to be in love, while photographing Tom & Emily on their wedding day. The quiet anticipation and nervous giggling as they were getting ready that morning. Then the butterflies and overwhelming joy when they first saw each other that day. They were surrounded by friends and family during the ceremony, under the big oak tree, but when they looked at each other it was like there was no one else around. After the I do's there's the thrill and excitement and shared congratulations! The joy is contagious and the smiles are unceasing.

We went for a sunset walk and then the love really exploded. Soft and quiet kisses in the neck, loud belly laughs at some secret joke, the warmth and comfort of a familiar embrace, wrapped up in love. What a special day it was!
