First Meeting Before The Wedding
After a flurry of activity, laughter, hunting for items, water, makeup, and all the things it takes to get the bride ready we were ready for the bride and groom to have their time alone before the ceremony. Off I went to find John and take him to the altar where he would wait for Amber.
What was different this time is that John comes from a large family, and Amber’s family was all there complete with all the grandparents as well. We had to almost beg to get everyone to leave the sanctuary. If you look really carefully they are all gathered at the windows watching cameras poised.
It is a hard decision for Studio D. It is a wonderful candid moment for great photos. Our promise is we will shoot a few images and then leave with everyone else. It is truly meant to be time alone for the couple. If the photographers stay, they are not alone.
Amber’s mom is on the right in the window.
John’s mom and sisters with Mom crying. So! We did something we have never done before. After a few moments we brought both mom’s into the sanctuary and let them go join their son and daughter.
A few moments after that we opened the doors for the bridal party and family to join in and we started the wedding portraits. Watching John stand quietly after his time alone with Amber with a tear still in his eye his love for Amber was written all over his expression. He didn’t say anything. He didn’t do anything. He just had eyes for her. It’s called love.
There’s another back story to their wedding. It will take some time to pull the images, and there are a bunch of images to pull to do it justice. Image files are archiving in another software program while I type this. Tonight or tomorrow we will tell you that one as well! Proofs will be up in a couple of days.
