Sweet Autumn Wedding Preview
Hayley and Mark are one of the sweetest couples I photographed last year with Janice Yi. I spent most of the morning of their wedding day with Mark (in fact I didn’t see Hayley until their First Look… it was a First Look for me too!), and getting to know him was a true privilege. He was so anxious and excited to see his bride all morning and when the moment finally came, I felt butterflies FOR him.
These are the moments that make you realize that it doesn’t matter if your wedding is simple or elaborate, big or small, rainy or sunny, smooth or full of bumps. You are there to celebrate love – your feelings for each other that are so strong they make you want to stand in front of your family and friends and show them that you choose this person for life. As a photographer, I don’t see minimal decor or extravagant centerpieces, expensive gowns or second-hand purchases – I see what makes a couple’s day theirs. These are all pieces of a wedding that I document and put together to show a story. There is a lot of pressure behind weddings to make them over the top and I really hope that more people can realize that when it comes down to it, weddings are about the emotions, not the physical items. Even the simplest weddings provide for beautiful images.
Here is a little preview of Hayley and Mark, with more to come!:
