Wedding Photographer at The Barn at Wesleyan Hills

If you’ve looked through this entire wedding gallery I know you’ve seen this same face repeatedly - I can’t help it! When a bride wears her emotions on her face in the way that this woman does the photographic opportunities are endless. Immediately after the ceremony the bride, groom, bridal party, and immediate families circled around the venue to wait and begin their family formal portrait session. I love this time on a wedding day because everyone is hugging and congratulating the bride and groom. It’s a great time for documentary work right before the more formal portrait session with the bridal party and families. In this photograph the mother of the bride was hugging her daughter for the first time after the ceremony. I photographed this image with my 70-200mm f/2.8 lens at f/4.0 so that I could ensure that both the bride and her mother would be perfectly in focus!
