The moment he laid his eyes on her and they filled to the brim with tears, I knew I should stuff some Kleenex in my dress for the rest of our time together… No, I’m not talking about Dave, I’m talking about Jenna’s dad, Steve. The first wedding of every season reminds me that wedding photography is like riding a (crazy, exhilarating, emotional) bike. A few months back I was blessed to spend a day with Jenna when I photographed her twin brother, Drew’s wedding to the gorgeous Katie. (Yes, it’s kind of crazy that they are Drew and Jenna, I’d like to think it’s fate.) Regardless, getting to see their family again reminded me that even though wedding photography is just one day for us, it’s a lifetime of memories for those we are lucky enough to capture.

Everything about Jenna and Dave’s day was perfect for them: laid back, relaxed, fun, and family focused. There wasn’t a guest there that didn’t love and adore them and beyond all the pretty details were beautiful, raw moments that I favor (over any gold accessory – crazy, right?) I drove home in silence remembering every moment: the way Jenna’s dad clung to her for that extra second, the way Dave’s smile lit up when he saw his bride round the corner, how his mom clung to him for dear life in a first dance that made me cry my eyes out, the excitement Jenna’s mom had from the minute she entered the church, the way Jenna’s grandma’s held hands in celebration on their way out of the church, every one was invested into every moment from start to finish.

Wedding photography is a lot of things but it’s so much more than just showing up and pushing a button, it’s investing in the lives of your clients so that they can live and re-live this day over and over and over again, amen.
