Integrity, honor, morality…. you don’t hear about words like these too often these days. And, it’s even harder to find those who possess these and act upon them. But, not Jessica + Joel… they’re of a higher standard. Getting to know couples like them gives us so much hope for our world, for the next generation. No matter what, they stay true to their convictions, and that is so admirable. This young, beautiful couple sets the bar high when it comes to character, beliefs and faith. We loved them from the beginning… we had such a wonderful time with them at their engagement session and as expected, their wedding did not disappoint one bit. It was such a celebration of their union with friends and family who truly loved them. It was awesome to see them putting their family as top priority on the dream day. Jessica looked beyond stunning in her dress. Her makeup and hair were simply flawless. Our groom, Joel, was not just handsome, but so HAPPY! His big, bright smile never left his face the entire day. I mean, I don’t blame him because how could he contain this type of joy?? There are many times when we have to tell our subjects to smile, but nope, not Joel. Being able to capture their ceremony was very special because they had so much emotions… there were tears of joy, smiles, laughter, sincerity, and wow… the way they stared deep into each other’s eyes was magical. For wedding photography, emotions is what make it… without it, it just becomes another photo. True emotions is what sets wedding photos apart from any other and they made this part of our job very easy!

Their day turned out just wonderfully… it was memorable in many ways. Jess + Joel, you guys have been very special to us. It’s been a pleasure to go through this wedding journey with you. We pray that as you are now, you will continue to stay true to yourself, to each other and God. Your faith is astounding, and we know without a doubt that you will make an impact through your marriage. Thank you for being who you are! We pray blessings upon your marriage and that your love for one another will grow stronger each day for the next 100 years! :)

With much love,

Craig + Unchong
