The sky is azure blue, the trees are ablaze with yellows, reds and deep rust colored leaves… I’m on my way to one of the most romantic weddings of 2010 up in the foothills of North Georgia at Lake Burton. The door opens to a beehive of activity at Jessica’s home. All this pre-Ceremony activity isn’t new to me but the breath taking vista from the Tench Family mountaintop home is amazing !!! The beginning of a truly perfect day. Jessica has one of those contagious smiles and most beautiful blue eyes you can imagine. Her husband-to-be, Aubrey, is next door playing pool, watching football and simply chilling before his moment in the spotlight a few hours from now.
I love this ‘getting ready’ part of a Wedding Day. You never know what photographic opportunities are going to unfold. To me it’s like getting a beautifully wrapped birthday gift. Undoing the bow and carefully peeling the wrapping paper is half the joy…
One of my most favorite moments was the instant Jessica and her Mom looked up into my lens after Jessica stepped into her gown. I can only imagine how amazing it must feel to both the Mother and the Daughter as they experience “together” the powerful emotions that climax on this day.
Throughout the day I look around and see so many big happy smiles and a lot of heartfelt tears. Every minute there is something new and beautiful to capture with my cameras. The time simply flies by… 4 hours then 6 hours… The sun is setting… the light is perfect … Jessica and Aubrey are dancing their first dance… It’s no wonder why I have such a passion for photographing weddings. There isn’t a better job in the world !!!
All My Best and All My Love to Jessica, Aubrey, and their incredible Families… Thank you for allowing me the privilege of being your Photographer !!!
