Lori and Alex’s wedding day was full of great stories and intimate moments. One of the first things we usually hear in the morning of is that the bride and groom didn’t sleep very well – they’re so anxious. When we first saw Lori, we found out that she actually overslept a bit and there was even a small delay with starting the makeup :) We were glad to see them so relaxed and to allow the day to just happen naturally.

Lori and Alex were really psyched about their portraits and picked out some amazing locations for their wedding photos. We started off at the Cypress Hotel, headed to the Hakone Gardens, and continued to The Mountain Winery for the ceremony. Posed and unposed, it was awesome to see them having fun and really enjoy being intimate in front of our cameras.

Nat and I were both digging the light during the preparations:

It was especially touching to see Alex get emotional during the ceremony vows. We could just feel how much these moments were affecting both of them:
