"First and foremost, I appreciated that I never felt embarrassed while working with Joni. I tend to be super uncomfortable showing and expressing affection and I was SO afraid of being judged for not gushing like a "typical bride."
Joni made me feel like it was ok to be myself.
Joni made me feel more comfortable and grounded in the whole experience being about "us" rather than the production aspect of it all. We loved having Joni there and her infectious lightheartedness calmed me down. It was amazing to have someone who lets you enjoy those personal moments with your family and friends but was also able to join in on some laughs and be a part of the group!
Since moving to Nebraska, our lives have drastically changed since our time in New Mexico. We have changed as individuals but also as a couple! This realization has made viewing our wedding photos a truly emotional experience for me because no matter how much our world changes, for that snapshot in time, those were the people and the moments that really mattered to us. Those precious photographs feel timeliness and remind me that in an ever-changing world, love is constant. I believe this sentiment will carry on into our future and I'm beyond thankful that Joni's photographs have been so inspirational."
