Still, it was a gorgeous day for the bride and groom, and I loved being behind the scenes from start to finish. I'll try not to say too much because I think the pictures do a great job of telling the day's story.
This was one of my favorite times of the day... The bride and groom exchanged letters before all the festivities began. It was such a sweet moment that immediately brought me back to my own wedding. All the emotion and anticipation about the details of your wedding day can be overwhelming. Then at some point things slow down just long enough for you to remember that it was always about the two of you. Perhaps it started with a letter, or in our case an email.
Watching Seth and Mercedes reminded me of that nervous excitement you feel in the beginning. Obviously after years of marriage your love grows stronger in ways you can't imagine as you face the realities of life together, but there is something so innocent and hopeful about the start of that journey. Shooting the two of them, I almost felt like I was intruding on their privacy. It's amazing that a camera lens automatically lets you into these very intimate moments into people's lives. (Ok, there was a ramble right after I promised not to do that...)This was actually a shot I took. Yay, one of mine made the cut!Maybe one day I'll do a post about my own wedding day, but honestly it was such a blur. If I didn't have the photos to remind me, most of the day would be forgotten. Since it is the week of "love" and all, here's a wedding related question. What was your favorite moment of your wedding day?
