The newly married couple seem vaguely aware as they sit with one another at their special table. I like how the attendees seem not to notice the two - aside from one person who turns to see their moment and gently smiles. Otherwise they seem worlds apart, as they should be.
I’m not quite sure if I was drawn to this image via its somewhat humorous scene or by its strangely askew moment in time - an oddity compared to similar scenes. Maybe it was a little bit of both that created intrigue. However, I was certain of its excellence. The photo gains an uncanny edge via composition and the juxtaposition of a resolutely, defiantly staid and still background. For me the backdrop to this moment was the key becoming the final ingredient that formed a necessary contrast to the starch-like rigidity of the wind-blown veil.
Exuberant and unique-- one you just want to keep coming back to.
You couldn't hope for a more romantic scene than this incredible venue, but, more importantly is how the photographer skillfully used light mixed with a moment to help bring this dramatic scene to us all.
Tender moment. Really captures the end of the night.
Elegant photo of a parent comforting a child. Nice moment.
A sleeper that kept moving up the line for its beauty and class.

You were the best wedding vendor decision we made! You were always prompt, responsive to my suggestions and questions, and I never worried that he would fail to catch a critical moment. I have received countless compliments on our wedding and engagement photos. I wouldn't hesitate to use you in the future or recommend you to anyone in need of a photographer.,
