It’s no surprise that bride and groom portraits are my favorite part of wedding day. And why not? The day is about them after all.
You’ll find some common themes around here: romantic, intimate, joyful, genuine, and organic. Not overly posed. Not trendy. I always try to keep in mind, “Is this timeless?” I want you to look back on your images and swell with joy when reminded of the memories of this day, not think “Gosh, what were we thinking?!” Another theme: color. A majority of my images remain in color. I do love a classic black and white image here and there. And I don’t have a certain algorithm for deciding what images should be color and which should be black and white (although some poor lighting situations might deem black and white as looking better). Sometimes I just think an image void of color allows the emotion to really show through. But in most situations, I find myself attracted to images in color.
I added some amazing portraits to my image inventory this year. It helps when all of your subjects look so amazing 😉 I honestly loved going through them and being reminded of all the joy I experienced capturing these images. And the joy they will bring both my couples and myself for many years to come. I also sprinkled in reception images into this post because my favorite thing to capture second to portraits are genuine moments; and receptions provide so many opportunities to do so.
