If I had to pick one word to describe Tobi and Josh, it would be exuberant… and all the synonyms that come with it. We first met this dynamic couple when they were in the bridal party at Kat & Shaun’s wedding and it was a no brainer from there – we absolutely wanted to capture their wedding day.
They chose to get married in Tobi’s hometown, Saratoga Springs, New York at the National Museum of Dance and even though the rain was on and off the entire day, you’d never know. Especially because the reception was inside and that’s when the good sky dumped. I’ll take it.
The day before their wedding, Nate and I drove around to get acquainted with this town that is basically ageless. I’ll I wanted to do was take photos of the eclectic hotels and parks for a series on Saratoga and the people who live there. After the best tapas I’ve ever had, we walked along main street and it was evident why people love this area so much. It’s like small-town living met big-city culture and Saratoga Springs was born.
Our hope for every #kncouple is that they plan and enjoy a wedding that is meaningful to them. It was evident that #jobiforever did just that. Josh’s grandmother was the flower girl, he wore converses and had Lego Men on his boutonnieres, and Tobi picked their portrait locations based on what she had dreamed about.
We did their first look outside of a Carousel in Congress Park and we received permission to take it over for a little bit. As well, right before the reception, we headed downtown to Northshire Bookstore to capture some portraits of them doing what they normally do together.
We loved being a part of this celebration and I guarantee you’ll love it too! I mean look at their faces during the first look! Congratulations Tobi and Josh! We’re cheering you on in your marriage.
