From such a small part of the wedding day, I find there are some really special stories to be remembered and it’s usually the first of a few times where I’m secretly wiping a rogue tear away from my eye…The first time the father of the bride sees his daughter all set to head off to the church, sisters hugging for the last time bearing the same last names, mom adjusting her daughter’s veil as she remembers the emotions she felt as a soon to be wife years earlier…oh, it gets me good!
Having me photograph the first little bit before heading off to the ceremony is a really great idea. It doesn’t need to be long, I like arriving just before hair and makeup is finishing up but I find the photographs from this portion of the day to be some of my favourites. The light is often just right and the emotions are ripe for the capturing. There’s a wonderful expectancy mixed with relaxation and excitement- every gathering is different!
Enjoy my favourites from 2014…
Big thank you to Jenessa and Amanda for spending time with the gents while I photograph the ladies!
