A Window into Weddings

For the last year or two I have been extensively shooting both family portraits and individual portraits. I am always taking portraits–always. My friends may think that carrying a camera around my neck all of the time is overkill. However, photography is all about intuition. Photography is intuition. When you’re asked to shoot a wedding, if you do not have a intuitive eye and mind, you’ll miss the shot on the biggest day of your client’s life. Intuition is something I’ve been able to cultivate in this respect of photography.

The shot, could be any moment. Many people argue it’s the kiss during the ceremony, but I would disagree. It’s the moments when the bride and groom are not “putting on a show” for their friends and families, but rather when they escape the waves of relatives and get some one on one time. Such as the image above, when the bride and groom snuck away from the crowd and spent a moment together. Regardless, a separated photo shoot is key in my “during” workflow.

The bride and groom are not the only ones on stage–so are the families. The mother of the bride will obviously want to see beautiful pictures of her daughter on her special day, but also a great picture of herself–after all she did get a new dress for this event too! Below are some select candids shot at the last two weddings I’ve shot.
