As the groom was giving his speech on stage, he couldnt hold back his tears as he was talking about his mother. That moment, her mother came up on stage and hug him tight. A powerful moment.

A post-ceremony scene. layers are my favourite photography technique, not only because of the challenge in creating a complex image, but because it provides context. This scene was observed for a couple of minutes and a succession of photos were taken but this moment of the bride crouching down to the child’s level gave this image an anchor to elevate it above the others.

Taken with a Fuji X-T1 and Fujinon 35mm f/2, ISO 200, f/4.5, 1/800sec.

I adore animals so when I arrived to the farm for bridal prep I was in a little bit of heaven. Pets everywhere all wanting to greet me and play. It was brilliant that every time I tried to take a photo of the dress, one of the pets would walk in front of the picture, and this one couldn't have been timed better. Loved it.

The Bittersweet Moment

This was a really bittersweet moment after the wedding ceremony had just ended. The sister of one of the brides and her mom had a moment where you could see and feel both the pain and joy in the celebration. At first glance, it looks like just joy, but when you realize what was really going on you can see there was sadness and support in the embrace as well. The father of the younger woman (sister of one of the brides) had passed away less than a week before the wedding. He had been ill and was able to officially marry the couple from his hospital bedside a couple weeks before, but passed away just days before the wedding. Just after the ceremony as everyone was hugging in celebration, I caught this moment between mother and daughter.
