Did You Know?

I have attended around a dozen weddings since last summer.

I've been in the audience as a friend.
I've been by the alter as the Maid of Honor
And I've been the photographer creeping through the crowds and snapping away with my camera.

I love being hired to photograph the entire wedding day. I get to capture moments like this one — A younger sister helping her big sister into her wedding dress. How priceless!

And moments like this one — friends enjoying a moment of pampering as they get their makeup done. 

Posed photos are fun, too. One of my favorite things is to "layer" a photo. Here you can see the Maid of Honor with the Bride in background.

Sincere moments of joy are still my favorite things to capture, though. I bet they always will be, too.  Here you see the flower girl and Bride laughing at a joke someone in the church cracked while we were taking photos. 

So all in all, I will tell you one of the many things I have learned through attending so many weddings: The day is fleeting and every moment — no matter how small or large — is priceless and worth capturing. So a big thanks to all the beautiful couples and families who have allowed me to be a part of their day.

Have a safe and blessed weekend!
