Wedding season

June not only brings warmer weather and flowers but also the wedding season. I am photographing more and more weddings each year. Weddings are a lot of work, that’s a fact. There is all of the pre-wedding prep, the actual photography of the wedding day and then all of the computer work afterwards for us digital shooters. So why do it? I can only tell you what makes it worth it to me. The above image shows the bride of the day being helped by her attendants, family and friends. All of them helping with the careful assembly of make-up, gown and veil to make her as beautiful as she can be for her wedding day. Her reward was to have her groom brought to tears at the first sight of his bride. To see and visually capture a couple truly in love, that is what helps make it worth it to me.
