joshnewton Here is @joywiesen right after she got married. I asked her to close her eyes and take in the moment… she just said “I do” to the man she’s going to spend the rest of her life with and that is a really beautiful thing. I have really enjoyed getting to know her and @codywiesen these last few years and admire their love for each other and for others - congrats you two and I’m excited that we get to be friends through this crazy life together =) 1d

joshnewton I think we marry and stay married to the person we do mostly because we cannot imagine life without them. Because no matter what accidents happen, what brain injuries occur, careers sputter, money eludes or disappointments pile up, that person is the one you want to endure with. Fight the good fight with. Wake up to in the morning even after a night of sorrow and confusion. They give you a sense of place, of foundation, of home. The institution that marriage speaks of is real and tangible to you because being married to this person feels like something concrete and physical, a place you want to live in. Because however love may change throughout the years, the way it reinvents itself in each new moment feels as urgent and powerful as the first heady incarnation. -Lorraine Devon

joshnewton "Could have maybe folded
When holding all the hands
Rode my luck, flicked that coin
And took my chances
Could have left me lonely
You gave up all your time
Now I'm here by your side
Till the end” -Both

joshnewton This stunning Hawaiian bride, @lianapihana, was incredibly fun to photograph. Her demeanor and character reflected this islands beauty in a remarkable way. Kauai is one of my favorite places in the world - there is something magical about this island and going there always puts my soul at peace. Thanks for having me be your photographer! 📸 1w

joshnewton A lot of people think shooting weddings is incredibly stressful. When people ask me if I get stressed... I tell them I have been shooting weddings for 10 years and I LOVE them =) Every wedding is so unique and I enjoy when people include details that are important to them and their personality. Tara and Matt were no exception, and photographing their wedding was a dream. Who they were came out in all of their photos and they made my job WAY too easy Thanks for letting me help solidify the memories of your beautiful day! 2w

joshnewton Who are the photographers who have pushed you to be more creative in your work? For me, @montanadennis and @jeffnewsom have both influenced my style so much! I admire their editing and the way they shoot and it has definitely affected the way I think when I'm shooting. Tag your favorite photographers below and if you want, let me know how they've affected your style 😎📸 3w

joshnewton "marriage. people always ask how's it going. what's the best part, the hardest part, our favorite, the most difficult or surprising? our answer: yeah, it takes a lot of adjusting when you completely join two lives and souls together. learning to die to yourself all over again or in new ways will always come with challenges. but living and getting to do life with one another is the closest i've experienced to heaven on earth." These two beautiful people got married last year, and I am so encouraged by them this is from @stephaniewalburg to @jjwalburg (pictured above) 3w

joshnewton Photographing proposals (especially undercover!) is probably one of my favorite things to do!! Getting to be someone's photographer in this moment is an incredible gift… I feel like my heart is about to burst out of my chest every time I photograph them. Congrats to all the couples who have decided to commit their lives to each other - it’s a huge step and getting to play this part in people’s lives is such a blessing! 3w

joshnewton This is from a wedding I photographed in Texas a little while ago. Joanna, pictured here, is an incredible person and it was an honor to be her photographer. She trusted me to capture her day and that meant so much! Even when I would hide behind doors and look like a crazy person 1mon
