Clients always ask me what my favorite part of a wedding day is. I could say so many different things and I really do enjoy every moment of the wedding day, but there is definitely one part that is my favorite! It is the moment the groom sees his bride for the first time. It can be at the end of the aisle in a church, or in the middle of a field during a first look. I get teary eyed every single time. No matter how many weddings I photograph, how many wedding I’ve been to, or if i’ve never even met the couple… I am filled with emotion! Being able to witness two people in that one moment where everyone and everything else in the World does not matter, is enough to make the tears fall! I am so blessed that I get to capture those moments every time I photograph a wedding.
I love seeing the different types of emotion that the groom displays (and sometimes tries to hide from his buddies), when he sees his bride. I’ve seen smiles, tears, and disbelief (that he is so lucky to have this gorgeous woman be his wife). Each couple is different and each wedding is different, but that moment is always the same. It embodies everything that is right in the World! The love, hope, joy, and emotion. It’s that moment that I capture through my camera lens that, I hope, will be the photos that carry these couples through the tough times. To remind them of the love, hope, and joy that took place in that moment. When the eyes of these two people met, and nothing else mattered.
That is my favorite part of the day. When all eyes are on the bride as she walks down the aisle, mine are always on the groom. Next wedding you go to, sneak a peek at the groom. You won’t be sorry that you did!
