Virginia Wedding Photographer // 2019 Best of Weddings
Details and Getting Ready
Warning! This is a LONG post! And it is only part one!
This is just a taste of what 2018 was like. I was surrounded by beautiful wedding days and this is the best way to represent what I captured.
The morning of the wedding can be a little crazy, but some of the best moments happen in this time. The bride sees herself in the mirror as a bride for the first time since starting the wedding planning process. She has imagined this moment for a very long time. She is not the only one who imagined this moment, her mother and probably grandmother imagined this also well before the bride did. That’s a big deal. The moment should never be rush and should be cherished.
Spending time with those you hold high in priority are present. Both bride and groom are to choose the people they are most intimately in relationship with, family and friends, and they share these hours together. These little moment are fun, sweet and memories that kept forever. It should be relaxing and meaningful.
Details do not make the relationship, or the marriage, but they represent heritage and personality. They tell the story of the day and one day the next generation will be curious about them.
When it comes to my personal faith, I believe marriage is a picture of the greatest relationship you can have. Marriage represents the relationship the church has with Christ. Representation is important to me, because my relationship with Christ is important. So yes, details are a big part of the wedding day. I am a big believer in identity, culture, personality and heritage. Details help tell the story so I make it a very important part of what I do on a wedding day.
