Those quiet moments........
Weddings can be so intense and crazy..... everyone wants to make your day so special and to show their love and caring. And sometimes it can be a bit much. So make sure you have a photographer who can foresee the family challenges, the feeling of being overwhelmed, little bits of fear and doubt and all the things that make us human. I have a degree in psychology and counseling experience; granted it was in a prison setting when I was doing grad school placements but wow, I learned a lot and fast. So weddings and crazy parents and over zealous MOBs are a piece of cake compared to Bubba.
During this wedding, I took the couple to a quiet part of the hotel with some soft lighting and asked them to tell each other what the day meant for them...... quietly and just between themselves. I have no idea what was said but the love and the heat was there. They will do fantastically well as a couple. Of that, I have no doubt.
And I had the privilege to photograph their wedding.
