A few months ago, I was presented with an opportunity to donate my photography services to Wish Upon A Wedding, a non-profit organization granting weddings to couples with terminal illnesses. When I heard about Sasha and Joe’s story and how Sasha is suffering from terminal breast cancer, I couldn’t say no. Sasha and Joe have been together for 8 years and share 5 beautiful children together. Their one wish was to get married and have a wedding to celebrate with all of their family and friends witnessing it. I am happy to say that their wish was granted and it couldn’t of been more of a special day. I am truly honored to have had the pleasure of documenting such a joyous, heartfelt occasion for this deserving couple. Below are my selected favorites throughout their day. Sasha and Joe, I am so happy we have met you both. You’re truly a beautiful couple inside and out. I feel blessed to have had the honor to photograph your love.

We started the day with a few lovely details.
Sasha getting her youngest Daughter dressed.
Such a sweet portrait.
And the flower girl’s gown…too precious.
Veil and shoes.
Joe holding the rings…
And then his finishing touches.
Love these portraits of Joe…
Especially this one.
The laughter and excitement was all throughout. Sasha was in the best of spirits.
And always laughing.
Sharing a moment together.
Quite a touching moment between Mother and Daughter.
Joe and his best man.
All ready to walk down the aisle.
A lovely portrait of Sasha
The bride and her little ones.
and her lovely bridesmaids.
The beautiful programs donated by The 2U Collection.
My favorite portrait of Sasha.
I love how they incorporated their children in the ceremony.
And onto my time with them…portraits.
Some of my favorites
Love this sequence.
The hot pink uplighting really saturated the room.
Onto the night club for some dancing.
Their first dance, so touching…
And Sasha dancing with her Dad.
Joe couldn’t hold back his tears, the moment was so moving…
And some belly dancing to liven up the party.
