Small Weddings

I love small weddings. The intimacy. The shared moments. There's so much going on that the smallest moments are often overlooked; missed.

 

These moments are the ones that bring us the most joy, laughter, happiness, and memories of a day gone by too quickly.

Traditional images of attire and important guests are a must for the wedding album!

I enjoy photographing small backyard outdoor type weddings. I enjoy playing with the light of the sun to capture the natural light upon my subjects.

Turning moments into memories

2010 TANYA WEDDING (56).jpg

This image of a mother and her son is timeless, as he gives his blessings of love.

The first wedding I photographed was a small backyard ceremony and celebration during summer of 2020.

The bride was very concerned with me capturing the groom's first look. I felt the pressure as we waited for the bride to appear. As everyone was looking at the bride, I kept my eyes (and camera) on the groom. My instructions were clear - capture his first look as she made her appearance. The smile on the bride's face upon telling her I captured the moment she wanted, is one of my favorite.

Capturing the essence of the moment is done without any prompting for a pose. I find these types of images to be the most beautiful as they depict the current emotion.
