Photographer's CommentA moment before this frame was taken, I noticed the flower girl trying to get someone's (probably her mom) attention. I started taking photos of that and then when she got whomever's attention she was trying to get, she lit up and waved at her! So cute! Right place, right time.
There's a wonderful innocence in the moment, accentuated by how the young girl's perfectly framed tilt and smile, and the fact that she's the only one whose face is seen, breaks from the controlled, erect symmetry of everyone else in the photo.,
Very nice detail as the violin player casts his shadow on the music notes of the wedding march. These are the kind of details that round out a wedding package.
This showed nice seeing, with the shadow actually over the wedding music sheet.
Photographer's CommentWhat an exit! I felt lucky to get this quick moment and have it come out this well.
Photographer's CommentI noticed the Bride and her father perfectly placed and ready to walk down the aisle and got this image. Still one of my favorites today.
Great light makes this a great picture. The composition and subjects may change, but great light is just great light. The hardest part can be exposing properly.
Photographer's CommentWe had a heads up that the groom was going to do this because we documented him earlier taping his shoes, so this shot was anticipated! I could've never imagined, however, that the reactions would be this great. Really, she had no idea!
The bride is so genuinely thrilled while the groom is so intent on popping the bubble. I love the energy of the whole photo and how sweet and sincere everyone is. Love that the groom is popping a bubble. The whole bubble thing always annoyed me - until now.

You were a great choice for our wedding photography. We were easily able to plan from out of town over phone and email. On the day you were so helpful, organized and efficient, capturing great moments throughout the day, both posed and spur-of-the-moment. At the same time, your picture-taking was never obtrusive and didn't feel forced. You were able to take hundreds of pictures of all our guests, which isn't an easy thing to do! Once we received and viewed our photos, we were very pleased with your talent, creativity, and range. You helped preserve memories of our special day and were a pleasure to work with!

From day one, you were a joy to work with. By asking us to fill out information about our day, you were on the same page as us when it came to our wants and needs for our wedding photos. The day of, you arrived on time and with a smile. I immediately felt at ease with you, like you were an old friend.

You did an amazing job at catching those moments that I'll never forget. You've provided us with lasting memories of our special day and we couldn't be more thankful!
