It was such an absolute pleasure to photograph Greg and Candace one week before their February wedding. Candace had contacted me to set up a styled elopement in the woods one week before their wedding day. As soon as she sent me her pinned inspiration I knew this was going to be magical! My good friends and videographers Kent and Ashleigh Mast of Kent Mast Photo & Video joined in this collaboration and it was an all out beautiful time. We had so much fun exploring Pinnacle Overlook during sunset! Greg and Candace even ended the evening reading their wedding vows to one another and every single one of us had teary eyes. It was such a neat moment!
Greg had been previously married for seventeen years, and Candace was previously married for fifteen years. Both of their spouses left them at the thirteenth year of marriage. Through their individual trials they both unknowingly held onto the same verse of Scripture for assurance that The Lord was still present. Here are some of their words:
“Through our trials SO much good has come. God has taken us through the desert, we’ve learned huge life lessons and this marriage is a promise, blessing and a huge celebration for our families who have seen us through it. Our kids are excited and we are grateful to give them a Godly example of marriage.” (Candace has two sons, and Greg has a daughter.)
I am so in love with this couple, the video that Kent and Ashley captured and these images.
