The Samantha Beany and Stephen Hart Wedding
October 8, 2016
Ceremony: Seasongood Pavilion
Reception: Freedom Center
There are times in a photographers life where it gets personal. Meg Ryan as Kathleen Kelly said it best in You've Got Mail, "Whatever else anything is, it ought to begin by being personal." Well making images is personal to us. We see this as an experience, a journey from the day we start talking about your wedding to the moment the shutter on the camera is pressed.
And also, there are times in a photographers life where we are privileged. And I felt very privileged to be a part of Samantha and Stephen's wedding day. These two have something special between them. Call it love or mutual respect or appreciation for each others quirkiness but I sensed it the whole time we were with them.
Then there are times when we get emotional. With many of the people who let us photograph their wedding, it gets emotional. We feel it. I believe to produce great images that spark sentiment you have to feel it behind the camera. Samantha was beautiful and witnessing a mom place the vail in her hair from her wheelchair pulled every heartstring.
And lastly, there are times we get playful. Stephen and the groomsmen broke out nerf guns. It was a guy thing. We suggest grooms get creative with the time they spend together. The girls take a longer time to prepare but the guys seem to have time to fill. Fill it with Fun!
