From Jason of Jason Walz Photography… As a photographer, what makes weddings amazing are the ever-changing landscape of details and the variety of people with whom I work. Each wedding offers the observers and participants a chance to reflect and learn, as well as to celebrate. At Sarah and Justin’s wedding, one thing that struck me was the positive energy that was exuded by the parents of the couple. Their support and joy was infectious to the guests and amplified the happiness of Sarah and Justin. I met Sarah’s mother, Jo Ann, during their photography search. She shared Sarah’s enthusiasm and sense of style, and I could tell she was the ideal partner for helping Sarah plan her wedding. These facts, as well as her incredible spirit, were notable from the start. I was thrilled when I was hired as the photographer. Not surprisingly, Sarah and Jo Ann planned an amazing event, which was held in Westhampton, New York, at Oceanbleu. Sarah looked gorgeous in her Reem Acra gown, and Justin was dashing in his J.Crew tuxedo. Their ceremony on the beach was both elegant and casual, with big smiles and laughter. This sensibility carried on throughout the reception, culminating in a late night bonfire on the beach to cut the autumn chill.
