There are several different types of photographers. There are gearheads. They get geeked about the toys we get to play with. There are techies. They get excited about how it all works. Then, there are the emotional types. You guessed it. That’s my category.
It never escapes me that this a huge day in many people’s lives. They’re counting on me to capture the memories. I feel that pressure…. in a good way and I am truly humbled that I get to take pictures that generations of family will look at. I am aware that long after I’m gone, the images live on. It’s the only dose of immortality I’ll ever have or ever need.
That said. This wedding was extra special for me. I have known the groom’s mom, Mary Lynne, for many years. I love her. She’s always positive, always loving and she’s just an all around good person. She has hugged me through some bad times and been lots of fun in good times. I truly think a lot of her. That made photographing her son’s wedding very special. Then, I met Chris and Lauren. And well… things just kept getting better.
Happy… I know. I know. It’s a word used to describe a LOT of weddings. And yes. It’s appropriate but honestly, if by the end of this blog post, your cheeks aren’t feeling the smiles, I’ll be surprised.
I think Mary Lynne is beaming!
The threat of rain haunted us but it certainly didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits.
It’s actually raining behind the bride. Thank you Medallion for a lovely covered porch.
Lauren’s mom was with us in spirit.
Ladies…. If a man ever looks at you like. MARRY him!
I’ll say it again. If a man looks at you like this… Marry him!
I love this one! Which is your fave?
Again… Look at the way Chris looks at Lauren!! Jeez…. That’s heart melty stuff!
Yep. I cried watching this. And again when editing photos.
A heartfelt speech from Chris’ dad.
Are you seeing the pattern? Look at him looking at her!
And again… If a man looks at you like that… marry him! (They are… In September.)
Another one!!! Look at him looking at her!! And yes… They’re getting married too!
Hope your cheeks are aching from smiling! Mine sure are!!
