Weddings like Lynn and Mick’s make me really, really love my job. First of all, Lynn and Mick are just such genuine, laidback people, and they planned my kind of wedding – a relaxed, beautiful, outdoor event followed by a fabulous party. And if that wasn’t enough, Lynn and Mick had a FIRST LOOK (!) and did most of their portraits before the ceremony, which equals wedding photographer heaven. I absolutely love the emotion and intimacy of the First Look and doing portraits beforehand always sets a nice, relaxed tone for the rest of the day.
There were two moments during Lynn and Mick’s wedding day when I got a little choked up. The first one was during their First Look, when it was evident how genuinely in love and happy these two are. That was a bit of a humbling moment, and I felt very honored to have witnessed that interaction and to be their photographer on such an important day. And then again during Lynn and Micks’ first dance, I got a lump in my throat. About halfway through their first dance, they invited their wedding guests to join them on the dance floor. Then, I think feeling a little less conspicuous, the two had an emotional, private moment on the dance floor while surrounded by all their friends and families. They clung to eachother and when the song ended, they pulled apart and their eyes were filled with tears. I think that was the moment on their wedding day, when it first sunk in – we’re married!!
