Something that I do differently from many other weddings photographers is that I’m there to see both the bride and groom in the morning of their wedding day as they get ready! (Many photographers cover the bride and bridesmaids getting ready, but send their second photographer out to be with the groom and groomsmen.) Personally, I love starting the day off by meeting everyone, soaking in the atmosphere, participating in the excitement, and catching up on all that they’ve been doing since I saw them last.
As I was talking with Mat, I asked him, “Remind me: how many years have you been waiting for this day?” As he thought about it and reflected back on the memories, he started to get a bit emotional and gently responded with, “Almost 3 years”.
It’s intimate, heart-warming moments like this that remind me of what an honour it is to be entrusted as a wedding photographer, with the ability we’ve been given to draw out and capture genuine emotion that is found deep within our couples. Keren: starting the day off by getting Mat ready with the right mindset (and not just in his right clothes) is my gift to you! As you can see, Mat was overjoyed to see Keren in her wedding dress for the first time walking down the aisle!
Well, after a 3-year long engagement, Keren and Mat are finally married! What an amazing day of celebration — it was well worth the wait. Congratulations, Keren and Mat! :)
