The first time I introduced you to our sponsor, San Francisco-based Juniper Spring Photography, I dared you not to smile when you saw these photos. And YOU ALL FAILED! (Failed in the best way, of course.) But auto-smile-inducing photographs are what you get when you get Liza's incredible photography style of romantic, light-filled portraits combined with her photojournalism skills. Wanna see how amazing wedding photography can be when you combine portrait and documentary photography? Be prepared to be stunned, and then be prepared to take advantage of Juniper Spring's special discount… You can tell SO much from this one photo: This couple is cool. This couple is in love AF. This couple got married at City Hall and looked great doing it. Sweet sweet cuddly kisses. Can't you just feel the intense loving energy radiating off of everyone's face in this photo!? Maybe you didn't catch all of your bridesmaids crying during your vows, but Juniper Spring Photography did. …And she also captured your "this is happening" smiles while your flower girl was kind of over it. The perfect lighting during your post-ceremony stroll? Yup, documented. That rare intimate moment you shared, before the entire reception became a blur of fun and friends. The cutest un-posed family photo EVAR! After seeing all that photography magic, these quotes from real Juniper Spring brides, won't surprise you at all… "I cried when I saw my wedding photos for the first time. It was as if Liza had known me and my husband our entire lives, knew exactly what mattered to us most…and was able to capture a lifetime of love and craziness and emotion that I didn't even realize was there." -Kirstin "Liza has an incredible eye for not just taking a portrait, but for making it into a piece of art. The colors she captures and the ways in which she frames her shots, makes her work more than just wedding photos! She does an amazing job of incorporating natural light and the beauty of the environment into the photos. I really feel like we are walking away with art that belongs in a gallery." -Jenny Gallery-worthy like WHOA! And you can walk away with art-gallery-worthy wedding photos for a special discount!
