At this sweet North Carolina wedding, I got to the church and went looking for the groom. I found him waiting in a quiet hallway, watching the rain falling outside. I raised my camera to my face and took a picture without him knowing I was there.
The quiet contemplation, the light on his face, even the way he was standing - all that would have changed if he had known I was observing him.
I try to innovate at every wedding that I shoot, and part of that innovation sometimes means learning when to be quiet. When to step back, when to observe. There is power in the quiet moments, and it's truly my great joy to document those alongside the louder, more hectic moments. All of those moments come together to tell the complete story of a wedding day!
