As a documentary style wedding photographer, I have the privilege of witnessing and capturing the most intimate, emotional, and genuine moments on a couple’s special day. While posed portraits certainly have their place in wedding photography, there’s something so special about the candid moments in between, the moments that tell the real story of a wedding. There were so many of these beautiful moments at Courtlyn and Sam’s outdoor wedding that completely melted my heart.
When no one’s posing, that’s when the real feelings shine through. The teary-eyed dad, an unexpected kiss between lovebirds, or the infectious laughter – it’s all so authentic and makes a wedding day truly unforgettable. Life is full of surprises, and the best moments often happen when you least expect them. I loved being able to capture these moments for Courtlyn and Sam on their wedding day.
“One day he messaged me on Facebook and he never stopped. We technically did go to high school together and he is one of my brother’s friends, but we really didn’t talk until a few years after we had both graduated.” C + S were so sweet! They were shy, yet really made sure to make their wedding day all about them as a couple and what brought them joy in their lives! And I am SO here for that!
“Oh my goodness! They are so wonderful and we are so happy with them. Thank you so much for being our photographer! You have been a JOY to work with and we love your work!”
These moments are like scenes from a romantic movie, showcasing the most beautiful version of the day. Candid photos never go out of style! They will transport you back, evoking the same emotions and sensations that were felt. It’s like a time capsule, preserving the most authentic feelings. It’s an honor to document these moments and provide couples with a genuine record of their love story.
