The Emotions of a Wedding
I love to capture the emotions of weddings.
Although weddings are not my specialty, I still shoot them on a case by case basis. Luckily for me I have a great team that I bring to a wedding to help capture the emotion. That helps me to relax and enjoy the flow of the wedding. I always resisted doing weddings because, hey, "I'm a commercial photographer, not a wedding photographer" I always said to myself. What I found out was that each time I photographed a wedding, I loved it. There is just something magical about capturing a part of family history.
There are so many emotions going on during a wedding and we try to capture as many as possible. Yes, we have a shot list of portraits and others items but in between those shots there is a lot going on that really helps to document the beautiful day. I like to be unnoticed and capture people when they aren't looking. I love getting those shots when people are interacting with others and simply just being themselves. One thing I am guilty of is getting caught in some of these moments. More than a few times I find myself with tears in my eyes. I guess I just love seeing people happy and living life.
I will continue to accept wedding jobs because I love them, not because I have to do them. I am always honored and feel blessed to be chosen to capture these moments in time and document this special day. Here is a little slideshow video with music chosen by the bride and groom for their first dance. I think it speaks volumes. Watching it on a large screen in HD is the way to go. Take a look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54PwWezK-Cc
