MOMENT of the MONTH // august

Reception photos can be some of the best candid photos of a wedding day. Everyone is having fun, shaking their butts off and all around celebrating. While I love capturing everyone getting their groove on, I’m a sucker for little kids dancing at wedding receptions. There is something so innocent, adorable, and carefree about them dancing. I mean how could you not look at this photo and think “how cute are they?!”. These two cuties captured at Jen and Mike’s wedding are August’s moment of the month.

MOMENT of the MONTH // april

I have been wanting to add a “MOMENT of the MONTH” post to my monthly blogging schedule for months now. Coming from a photojournalism background, it just made sense for me to find a way to highlight images that capture perfect moments. The images that will be featured here over the next few months might not be a part of the original wedding/session blog post or they might not end up as a canvas in my clients’ homes, but they are images that tell a story.

I had a HARD time picking the first MOMENT of the MONTH but as I thought back to 2013, there was one moment that stood out for me. My stunning bride, Ashley, was not having a first look with her groom, Matt, so I suggested we do a first look with her Dad. She loved the idea, but she didn’t think there would be a great reaction to capture.

I had tears in my eyes behind the camera as I photographed the beautiful moment of a father seeing his little girl all grown up dressed in her wedding dress.

It is moments like these that I capture that make me fall in love with my job over and over again.
