Wow, somehow it is only June and yet Dave and I have already captured some truly gorgeous weddings of some of the very best people ever!! Every year we get luckier and luckier with the couples we have as they really are just the bestest ever and I am so eternally grateful that we get to work with them all! And of course Michelle + Colin were no exception. Not only are they super adorable and all around gorgeous people, but they are sweet, thoughtful and funny! I loved basically everything about their wedding day!
A lot of brides use their wedding bouquet to help commemorate a loved one who isn’t around anymore, or to cherish a special moment or item. I myself used part of my mom’s wedding veil as the wrap of my bouquet and we have seen many other brides who have used a necklace, photo locket or other such item as part of their bouquet to highlight someone near and dear to them. But Mary’s wedding bouquet has to be one of the sweetest and most thoughtful ones we have photographed yet as it was literally made from notes the bride received from her mom over the years.
I love when couples decided to infuse elements from their lives together into their wedding day. Whether it be favours that include some of their favourite things, or personalized vows that include inside jokes and stories, making your wedding day your own really sets it apart from any other wedding out there. And I absolutely adore the ways Shannon + Kevin decided to make their wedding day their own by infusing parts of their proposal story and even how they met into the main events.
So I am not entirely sure why but so far this year I have been getting so incredibly nervous before we head out to weddings (or sessions in general). Now, I am a kind of anxious person to begin with when it comes to plans and making sure I am on time, but when it came to Shannon + Kevin’s wedding day I was extra worked up all morning for what seemed like no reason at all.
On this winter day, I thought I would share a few details shots I took of a few wedding details I had laying around the house. I have shared portions of these before, but here is the complete set.
I love details shots. During an actual wedding, there is normally only a few minutes here and there to grab the detail shots. Being able to think quick on my feet and still be creative is something I take pride in. I love being able to capture these tiny parts of the wedding day for my clients and help their future selves remember every moment of their big day.
