When it comes to weddings, I could go on and on about how much I adore them and the hidden magic just waiting to be found, but instead I'll leave you with some of my favorite moments that happen during a wedding day!

  1. First Looks

Why? The emotionally charged moment of a husband and wife to-be seeing each other for the first time that day is unreal. It's one thing to see each other in a crowded ceremony room while keeping those emotions tame, but the privacy afforded to the couple allows them to react freely and let their emotions take over for a short moment. It is nothing short of magical. And then there's the added bonus of being about to grab the bridal party shots before the ceremony rather than after, causing a change in the timeline that favors the bride and groom, allowing them to actually make it to their cocktail hour!

2. The Shoes

Why? There's a special kind of magic that I get to create when one of my brides hands over her wedding shoes. I love styling them to reflect the bride, the venue or the season they chose to get married in. It's the perfect warm up for me to get ready for the ceremony and make sure my eye is attuned to what is important.

3. The Getting Ready Room

Why? You try walking into a room pumped full of energy with high pitched laughter, giggles, and chatter and not love every minute of it.

4. The Moments shared between Mother/Father and Daughter

Why? While the bride and groom may have known each other for quite some time, they have not known each other as long or as well as a mother or father has known their little girl. Every little thing they find themselves doing as a part of this big day is monumental and capturing it is a must. And if you are thinking of doing a first look with your parents or grandparents, I HIGHLY recommend it. Nothing is more authentic and meaningful to a parent or grandparent than to have you step aside from the hustle and bustle of a wedding day for a quiet moment one-on-one.

5. The Details

Why? When a couple takes the time to think of their wedding details, their personalities shine through and I immediately feel like the story grows even more from that. When they choose details that are more oriented to their tastes, I feel like I am getting to know them more, and when they are personalized, I feel like I've been let in on a wonderful secret.
