I have always been a prompt person. We planned to meet at the temple around sunrise... well the hairdresser had other plans :) I wish they could have been here for the amazing lighting, but instead - I got some one on one time with the building. :) It pays to be prompt!
I never ever liked kissing pictures of me. We only have 2 for the entire 7 years I have known Jay. Now I am re-thinking that stance I had (anti-kissing photos). People usually look great in kissing pictures - their jawlines especially. For some reason, you can always feel something when you look at them too!
This bride couldn't sleep at all the night before her pictures. Poor girl - and she was up super early. She was such a trooper and happy to boot! I think all brides are that way - they have no nerve endings for cool/hot weather, they have achy jaws from smiling so much - and they are up to do anything you ask them... well mostly everything!
This photo just works for me. For some reason I just love it.
Lastly, being there to create a moment. She was so happy for the staging of this picture - every girl is a daddy's girl! Her mother has one like this with her father, and it was important to the bride to have one for herself. Her wedding "flavor" was traditional, classic, and elegant. I hope that her theme was reflected in the photography - I seem to think so. Hopefully I will have some new stuff for you to munch on soon - even if it's my own kids! For now, I'll be mixing it up a bit with some of my unseen favorites!
