on saturday, i had the supreme honor of photographing these two on their wedding day.
i went to high school with jonathan & kayla, and honestly feel like they've been married since december 2004, which was when they had their first date. that's how right they've always been. jon was one of my closest friends in high school and BOY were we nerdy. and i don't mean nerdy in some vaguely twee way. more like hanging out after school and trying to guess the essay prompts for upcoming AP history & english tests, & writing practice essays. but for all jon's school smarts, the smartest thing he ever did was date kayla, who is one of the sweetest-natured people i've ever met. she always has a kind word (and usually a box of, like, 1200 individually-wrapped cookies) to offer. but seriously, i want to sit at her kitchen table and have her hand-feed me cookies until i die. also, she let their wedding party recess to the tune of a star wars soundtrack...so, dude, treat the woman well.
and so, it goes without saying, but i'll say it anyway: i adore these two. here's to a healthy & happy life amongst the books and everything else that you love.
