It’s true, I am a sucker for reflections. Often they seem to capture the mystery, magic, and soft romanticism of a wedding day that passes quickly, with moments that seem like a remembered dream.
Many times, it is a simple image of getting ready with your best friend that will remind you of your wedding day morning.
A fun little vignette of the Bride and Groom standing "backstage" awaiting their walk and introduction into the reception.
Hugs for the win. Wedding days are filled with such emotion, and I love capturing how each guest shows their support of a couple and enjoys the day.
I tend to integrate a number of environmental images into every wedding day. I believe images such as these not only document the physical location of the event, but in years to come, hopefully stir memories of smells (ocean salt) and sounds (wind, gulls)...which can transport you back to the wedding day.
I love it when couples relax, cut loose and be themselves at a wedding. It is surprisingly hard to do, as you are overwhelmed by the achievement of pulling off hosting such an epic event, and being pulled in a million directions by loved ones.
A simple, quiet, found detail of the wedding dress awaiting to be put on.
It only takes 1.4 seconds to capture a straight faced, smile, look at the camera formal photograph. I find that often the more memorable image happens immediately before or after the structured image, in which the bridal party is allowed to just be themselves. It is hilarious and personalized when people at a wedding are left to their own devices and given freedom.
Every family, and every event is a little bit of a guessing game as I await what event or moment will unlock an emotional flood. For Pam and Steve, one of those moments was Steve dancing with his mother.
Weddings are all about personalization. More and more these days, the cakes, donut bars, ice-cream and dessert aspects are a central point of a bride and grooms' presentation of their tastes and personalities.
On its own, I like the layers and complex nature of this image. I wanted to capture the unique and timeless feel of the venue (Waltham's museum of industry and innovation) while still capturing the important guests awaiting the ceremony. I find myself slowly looking through the many parts of this image.
