“During the ceremony, do we turn to look at the readers, or do John and I look at each other the entire time?” Kristen asks me as I am floating around the getting ready room taking pictures of her and the bridesmaids. I actually had to pause to think about this answer before responding- you would think I would have automatically known after having photographed 100+ weddings! (For the record, I don’t think there is a wrong answer to this, but most of my couples will continue to face each other, the reader usually being in one of their points of view.)
It makes my heart happy when my clients want to get my input on more than their questions about the actual photographs. For any given wedding, is typical for me to be asked questions such as how to put in a veil, how to pin a boutonniere, or even how to cut the cake. I love lending any help that I can! Especially to a couple as sweet and kind as Kristen and John.
What I found exceptionally special about Kristen and John’s wedding day was the blanket of love that seemed to envelop the atmosphere the entire day. It is pretty hard to explain how I could sense this love other than by observing the hugs, kisses, and words spoken that day. Maybe it was the sense of calm that seemed to follow Kristen and John around everywhere that day. Maybe it was the amount of time and attention they paid to each other, their friends and their families that day. Every small moment was appreciated. Kristen and John are the type of couple that makes everyone feel special and loved, which is why they are so deserving of the plethora of love that was reciprocated back to them that day.
