First up, a deaf bride and her aspiring interpreter groom. I don't know ASL, more than some key words like "beautiful", "sorry", "hungry", "toilet" and "bear", (I'm sorry, beautiful, but the hungry bear is in the toilet ) but that did not detract at all from the love shared that day. Why? Because, as a photographer, I get to see all the small changes in expression, the light in someone's eyes, the subtle touches, the nervous flutters. You know that saying that a picture is worth a thousand words? Yeah. I'm in one of the few professions that gets to show the world something beautiful, and doesn't have to ruin it with a lot of talking. On to the pictures:
"Don't you dare!"
The second wedding I was actually in...like, maid of honor in. So I didn't get a lot of pictures of the actual wedding, or any formal shots at all, since I was front and center in that action. It was one of my best friend's weddings, though, so I really enjoyed being forced to put down the camera and be swept completely up in the moment.
The bride cried. The groom cried. I cried. It was a great event.
Once my maid of honor duties were done, and before they officially began, though, I got some great shots. Let me share them with you:
Summer is certainly wedding season!
