Best of 2013: Ceremonies

It could definitely be argued that the ceremonies are the most important time of the wedding day. You plan for months and months so that you get a kiss that seals the deal along with the amazing announcement of now being married. Officially. We will never fall out of love with the wedding ceremony and what it means to a couple and we will never tire of the nervous laughter, the tears being wiped from eyes, and the overall feeling of love that is so palpable during that time.

Here are our favorite images from our 2013 wedding ceremonies.

Best of 2013: Families

It’s that time again when we start winding down with the year that we are in and start looking forward to the next. But before we jump in to 2014 (how is that even possible?!), we want to celebrate what a great time we had in 2013. We are so lucky to do what we do. We get to meet people who are happy, in love, and want to document what makes them special. That’s our job and we couldn’t be happier about it.

We’re going to start out our “best of” posts with family sessions. A family shoot is almost always hectic, chaotic, and leaves at least one person crying (usually the baby). But what you get back is your family, the way that you see it. Here are some of our favorite family images from the past year.

Katie and Ed’s Wedding at Battersea Arts Centre in London

Katie and I met in 5th grade, the year that I moved to Texas from Canada. She taught me that the word “homely” didn’t mean “cute” like I thought it did, that wearing deodorant is important, and how to make a pallet on the ground at slumber parties. We wore matching overalls, dressed like M&M’s at Halloween, were in a band together with our then boyfriends, and basically experienced life together in a big way. We haven’t lived in the same state or country since we were 17, so it was so incredibly special for me to travel to England to photograph her wedding.

Being surrounded by the new family that she’s made for herself in London was amazing. The friends that Katie and Ed have made are the kind of friends that welcome you immediately. And Ed? Perfect for Katie. The way that they make each other laugh is so contagious. They decided to walk in to the ceremony together, so the very last moment before they entered the room was just for the two of them. I could see them through the glass window and it took everything in me to not start sobbing on the spot. Their relationship, and now their marriage, is for them. They walked up holding hands with all of their friends and family gathered on the staircase, watching and smiling, and I realized I had never seen such a happy room. During their ceremony, they took turns telling the story of how they fell in love. It was personal and I know that everyone felt lucky to be there. I definitely felt lucky to be there.
