Ever since I started doing photography I have been asked over and over again, "Do you do weddings?" My answer has always been a quick and determined, "No!" Weddings, I thought, were too much pressure for me. You have one chance to get it right; the day is one of the most special days of the happy couple's entire life. I didn't know if I was cut out for the stress of documenting such an important day. But recently I have begun to realize that by staying away from weddings I have been keeping myself from the beauty and the love that surrounds such a special occasion--that same beauty and love that I search for and strive to capture in all of my sessions. Perhaps it is time to change my answer.
My good friend, Jennifer, agreed to help me test the wedding waters. She allowed me to follow her around as she photographed Breann and Joseph on their special day. When I first met the happy couple, they had already tied the knot in the Washington DC Mormon Temple, and they were just beaming!
