As I walked the couple through the park and photographed them, I saw how much they love one another. I saw it in the ways they made each other laugh, in the ways they expressed their affection, in the ways that they reassured each other in stressful situations, and most of all in the way they looked at one another.
During the ceremony the bride and groom shared beautiful vows that each of them wrote, the officiant got a little bit emotional even though she had never met them before the ceremony, and the mother of the bride glowed with joy even as tears dripped down her face. Those are just a few of the special details I was able to observe as I stood in the midst of trees and looked through my camera lens. The ceremony was, as it ought to be, centered around love.
I am so thankful that I was able to be with the bride and groom on their wedding day and to help document these moments and details for them. I am by no means a professional photographer, but I am so thankful for my camera and the ways that I am able to use it to capture glimpses of this tapestry we call life.
