Wedding photography isn’t always about beautifully polished, perfectly directed images. Sometimes it is about real emotions and spontaneous reactions.


Wedding photography is there to encapsulate those magical moments and let you relive them in the future. It captures emotions you felt and tells a real story of that special day. Think an image of the bride looking at the groom during the ceremony. Her eyes are focused on him and she is smiling. Then he looks at her and admires how beautiful she is. Or a picture of groom’s mother congratulating her son who just got married. She is hugging him and crying because she is simply overwhelmed with emotion. These pictures show love, happiness, meaningful looks, tears of joy and honest laughter. Or imagine having a picture of your friends laughing to a joke someone has just told. There is something special about the images that are preserving those fleeting moments forever!
