I wanted to capture all of the little details that are sometimes NOT as focused on or paid attention to.
My goal was to get the behind the scenes candid moments of Tara & Adam’s wedding.
I was also interested in some of the typical shots such as “the shoes shot” that you see a lot from wedding photogs and I wanted to find a special way to capture them. I tried 3 different things around the room that I didn’t love until I noticed this framed painting Tara’s mom had against the wall!
I read it and decided that it was PERFECT!
Always kiss me goodnight
Tara’s mom had the invitation all set up at the house with cute wedding bells hanging nearby:
I told Tara “don’t do anything without telling me first!” which made me laugh but I meant that I wanted to make sure I got all of the little details and I didn’t want to miss a thing!
I followed her around her mom & dad’s house and captured moments like this…
Putting on her jewelry in her mom’s bedroom mirror:
Getting out her grandmother’s ring out of the box to wear (her something old):
Mom looking beautiful…waiting to put her dress on:
Dad getting his tie on:
Her sister and maid of honor helping her get her dress on:
And I even captured behind the scenes moments of the photographer showing Tara and her parents one of the photos he had just taken.
(Gerard the photog and I go waaaay back… I told him I may ask him for a job one day LOL)
After the photographer left we had some time before the limos arrived so Tara and I stood near the front door waiting.
So much natural light was shining through the door that I was psyched to not used a flash for any of these!
I saw her fix her hair and I told her to just keep her hand there. I loved it…
Somewhere in between me following everyone around I managed to get dressed, do my make-up, fix my hair and then be ready in time to see Tara & the bridal party into the limos and follow them all to the reception:
I was a busy, busy bee!
