I remember when I shot my first wedding, I was a nervous wreck! I had only been to weddings as a child, I never fully understood the magnitude of this one day and here I was hired to capture it all. I tried to decline but they insisted I was the person for the job.
Going back I would defiantly do some things differently, but I wouldn’t say NO. That day changed my life. Here I was in a church watching two people make lifetime promises to each other in front of their friends and family, it was one of the most amazing things I had ever saw.
Weddings are hectic… I have seen the good, bad, and the ugly! But there are some moments you just cannot deny. Here are few moments that make your wedding day the BEST DAY EVER!
The Emotional Groom
All day long he walks around like wedding day is no big deal! Then when everyone stands up to look at the bride walk down the aisle, I turn and watch him. The emotion on his face is always priceless. A bride knows she looks stunning on her big day and that is evident in every picture. But the one that will really blow your mind is the one that reminds you how beautiful your groom thought you looked when he first laid eyes on you.
The time out picture
You say I do! You hurry back down the aisle and your coordinators and photographers whisk you away from the crowd. In those few seconds those rights after you say I do is when the bride and groom are the most natural and show the most genuine love and excitement! You are finally married!
Something about dancing with your parents always gets me chocked up. The person that has loved you the longest is holding you in their arms letting you know how proud you make them. Gets me every single time!
