This past summer I had the privilege second shooting with Danielle Stone Photography near Grande Prairie, and Jessica and Dean’s wedding was a day I’ve been very excited to blog! Jessica and Dean’s wedding day was surrounded with such amazing people, and it was so much fun photographing and being the second photographer for their special day!! As much as I most times enjoy being the main photographer, photographing Jessica and Dean’s wedding day really taught me to enjoy the moment and being really in tune what is happening throughout the day and all the special moments happening in between.
In particular, inside the getting ready room almost brought me to tears. The room filled with joy that morning as the bride Jessica getting ready with her bridesmaids and her sweet mother. It happened so soon, the bride about to leave for her wedding ceremony. But before, she soaks in all the emotion for what is to come. Her mom and dad standing beside her. So proud of their daughter and the man she is about to marry soon. They look at each other, share a smile and give each other a warm hug. In that moment, they hold each other tight. The tears start flowing, and it was in that moment I knew they were sharing such a precious moment with one another. A moment not to be forgotten photographing this moment so they can look back on for years to come.
These photographs are the reason I do what I do, to capture moments that will be treasured in the future and shared with the ones they love. So the bride doesn’t have to worry a thing, and allow her photographers to capture the natural moments on her wedding day.
And something so rare happened during Dean’s and Jessica portrait time, it is something I will never forget because it was literally a photographers dream! We had beautiful sunset “golden hour” at 4:00pm which NEVER happens!So at a time during the day when light is mostly harsh all over, Dean and Jessica got dreamy wedding photos that looked like it was taken at sunset hour! If Danielle and I had the chance, I think we could have continued shooting their portraits a lot longer. It was so so dreamy! But either way, we made sure Dean and Jessica got such beautiful variety on their wedding day!
Dean and Jessica, it was such an honor photographing your wedding day! Not only was your wedding a dream to photograph, but we loved capturing all the special moments that you two will treasure for life!
