BRITTANIE AND ZACH – THE DAY…(photos by ewan)

Getting married at sunset on a rooftop. First-look. A self-altered dress. A home-made broach bouquet. Do-it yourself shoes. A musician. The girl he loves. And music. Introducing Brittanie and Zach…

From our very first contact with these two we knew it was a good fit. They were up for anything. Understood our style. And said, ‘we trust you’.  All of the elements of the day were Do-It-Yourself and reflected their personalities. And Brittanie and Zach asked to do a concept shoot for both their engagement session and wedding day. We were instantly sold.

Brittanie and Zach, you were the first couple who was up for a concept shoot on their actual wedding day. Thank you for allowing us the freedom to do something outside of the box in terms of wedding photography. And thank you for inspiring us from start to finish. It’s been a pleasure since day one. We hope you’re having fun on tour and loving every minute of married life together.
