capturing the simple moments at a beautiful wedding

several months ago, liz asked if i would photograph her wedding.
while that was a huge compliment
i explained that not only was i not a trained wedding photographer,
i didn’t have the equipment to shoot a wedding.
she so sweetly said, well, will you just come & do what you do?
no pressure.
sold.
liz was a stunning bride.
you could just sense her desire to soak in all the little moments
& enjoy all her friends and family celebrating and honoring her special day
as she & her little man married her prince charming.
liz paid me what has to be the highest compliment 
i think i’ve ever received as a photographer.
as soon as she walked up she told me,
“i’m so glad you’re here. i know you’ll make me beautiful”…
wow.
easy to do when your client is stunning.
here are a few of the little moments from her special evening.
& thank you liz.
i wish you & your precious family 
a life time of all your dreams coming true
~~

one of my favorite moment…
the sky was almost completely dark but i knew liz had wanted a shot down on the dock.
i drug them  asked them to quickly sneak away from the reception…
if i only had some van morrison to play in the back ground,
they may not have returned 😉

Kelli - You did an AMAZING job. So amazing that when I saw the picture of her crying it made me teary. You really capture the joy and the emotion of their day and I know she will never forget that. No amount of equipment can replace the eye you have for photography and capturing the real shots. Way to go Paige!!!
