Deity Events NYC Wedding - Brooklyn - Olivia and Tao

Deity Events NYC Wedding Brooklyn Photographer New York City

Tao’s voice started breaking as he read his vows, Olivia was wiping away tears from her eyes, and I was struggling to hold back tears from behind the camera. I couldn’t understand a word of the language he was speaking, and yet I could totally understand his intentions.

Tao is a very intelligent man, and I’m sure his vows were full of beautiful words, and I’m not pretending that it didn’t matter what those words were. But the way he looked at her, the way his voice started quivering, the way he choked up as he tried to speak — these all showed me that he loves this woman with all his heart and that he was honored to be marrying her.

Olivia, you absolutely blew me away with your kindness and your trust. It’s clear that you wanted this day to be wonderful, and while you’re a natural leader, you were perfectly willing to look to me and follow my lead when it came to the photos. Thank you for this! It’s also clear how much you love Tao. The way he could so easily light up your face and break you into a smile or laugh was a joy to experience.

Olivia and Tao, I am so honored you invited me to celebrate and photograph your wedding day. Your love has that rare quality that feels so light, so joyful, so full of laughs, and yet also clearly runs so deep. You are a picture perfect pair, and your wedding day was a dream. Congratulations!!
