They met a year ago to the day of their wedding. The internet brought them together, and when it was time to meet face to face for the first time, they both knew this was it. The big one. That once-in-a-lifetime kind of love.

Music unites them- “our love is like a musical,” she said. “I forget the music, and he picks up where I’ve left off.”

And so it was to the soulful tunes of Train that Maria walked up an aisle to marry her love, the one that completes her song.

Jaran and Maria, it was such a blessing to me to witness your love for one another and for your new family. Jaden couldn’t have been more blessed with such an amazing family.

We managed to sneak outside for a few portraits. These are proof that you don’t have to have an amazing garden or incredible architecture to have great portraits- all of these were taken behind the restaurant where the wedding and reception took place.

Maria, you’re a show-stopper. And that husband of yours? FIERCE.
