Well, I had intended to post only a couple photos from this wedding last weekend, but as you can see I got carried away! What can I say? I couldn't narrow it down any further! I don't typically photograph weddings but this was a special circumstance, and I hope they were as happy to have me as I was to be there. I have to admit that during the ceremony I got all choked up and had to fight back some tears. I didn't expect that, but it was all the groom's fault! He just looked so in love, I couldn't help it!
My favorite part was spending time with this newly official family after the ceremony away from everything else. It was so obvious they were already such a close family before the paperwork proved it, and I loved watching the interactions between them. Sometimes when I think about it, I find it funny that I get to spend a couple of hours hidden behind a camera, peering through a tiny square hole watching people I've only recently had the pleasure of meeting interact as they would without me. It's my favorite part of this job because it gives me such faith in humanity to see all the joy and love people have for each other.
Congratulations, R and J! I'm so happy for you and your family. Enjoy a peek at your photos! Thanks for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
