Photographically speaking, there are several important parts to every wedding… some parts that can be controlled and some that can’t. As a rule, I tell my clients that I will try to find an interesting space to frame them in and then let them loose… maybe some minor guidance if needed, right? Well, Cait and Matt started off in a sweet sort of embrace… something you’d expect of two people about to get married. Somewhere in their hug, they must have whispered this in agreement because with no warning, they went into a series of about 8 very high jumps… Cait got almost as much air in the first couple of leaps but I couldn’t pass up Matt’s sheer exuberance in this frame!
Laughing and flushed, we spent about a half an hour putting two very real lovers into the camera… these are portraits they will revisit for the rest of their lives. Years from now, they and their families will marvel that they were ever this young.
And that is my job. Short and sweet, the definition of a professional wedding photographer is to catch all of it… the posed and expected and the absolute joy of the unexpected.
I wouldn’t have missed this one for the world!
