I get to witness some pretty special moments as a wedding photographer.
The day goes by so fast, but the minute the bride puts her dress on, time stands still. Everyone gets a chance to breath and marvel at how beautiful she is.
I think it is the moment the bride realizes that this day is real, the day she has been waiting for is finally here. Once the dress is on, there are only those sweet precious moments before she sees the man she is going to spend the rest of her life with. Her eyes get big and she looks at herself in the mirror and sees how beautiful she truly is.
I've shot weddings where the bride has all her friends there while she puts her dress on and there is not a dry eye in the room. I've also shot weddings where the bride wants the moment to be just between her and her mom. Both are so special and take my breath away every time. It's actually the only time when I have to remind myself that I'm the one taking pictures because I catch myself being easily caught up in the moment.
These are memories that I will remember forever.
Soon to be brides...
If you are looking for a photographer, I would LOVE to talk to you. I would love to be the one to capture your special moments, like when you put on your wedding dress for the first time:)
