You guys!!! Elopements are so so incredible to photograph. When it’s just us, the couple and the friend/officiant, the sacred and intimate part of what a wedding is really all about is palpable. I love being a part of weddings like this so much. Jina and Jon met us at Boston College, an important place to them. We spent a good hour just photographing them in an easy way then headed over to the Arnold Arboretum to meet their friend Sonal for the ceremony. Under a weeping hemlock tree, they committed to a marriage, with lines from one of my favorite poets: “And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.” -Kahlil Gibran,
Afterwards we headed up Peter’s Hill for the couples last few photos with us AND a real first dance, just them, and iPhone, and the Boston skyline. What a dream eh?
