After photographing weddings for over eight years, what do you say about a wedding? This was actually pretty easy for a change! Erin and Brian’s wedding was the perfect way to end my 2012 wedding season. Great couple, awesome bridal party, great venue, and (love) true love. I felt honored to be a part of their day and it was fun and emotional all at the same time. For me, the best part was Brian and his Mom dancing to You Are My Sunshine. I think I have discovered the song that my wife should dance with me boys. When they were both babies she (and I) sang that to them to help them fall asleep and even today my youngest asks for “special songs” at bedtime even though he is 7 1/2, and when my wife sings it, he sings along.
So, not only was Erin and Brian’s wedding special for them, it touched my heart and brought a tear to my eye. Enjoy a snapshot of their amazing day and see you all in 2013!
And here are my favorites from the day…
First is the fun hallway on the way to the bathrooms at DuPont…when Erin and Brian had a photo “near the stairs” on their list, I thought they meant the normal grand stairway…NOT…this spot is far better!
This next shot is one of my favorite moments of an entire day…the time that Dad sees his daughter in her dress for the first time
I call this image Job Security…in other words the involvement of flower girls and ring bearers in weddings ensures that some little girl is in a wedding and dreams of being a bride her whole life!
While the obligatory image of the groomsmen is necessary for Mom and Dad, this is far more fun!
Every bride touches the groom a different way at the reveal shot…I loved how Erin did wrapping her arms around Brian.
This is why you never take your eyes off the ceremony. Erin and Brian just leaned in during one of the prayers, it was sweet.
Bow chica wow wow…
Erin’s dress was one of the most perfect dresses I’ve ever seen for spinning and how it just twirled perfectly…this is a second after Brian spun her and you can still see her dress twisting, super fun.
No words needed here…Father and Daughter
