Being a witness to so many weddings is such an amazing opportunity. At times I feel like an anthropologist. I get this unique access to these family dynamics, their culture, their particular way of interacting with one another. When in your life does your family, and friends all gather in one place to celebrate you? One of the most powerful moments for me at Emily and Kevin’s wedding came when Kevin’s father gave his speech. Kevin’s father was also his best man, and during his speech he said that at some point his son had become his best friend. There wasn’t a dry eye during that speech and while I was trying to photograph the moment I kept thinking to myself, at what other time in a man’s life would a son get the opportunity to hear his father express his admiration for his son in front of a room full of friends and family? Weddings are truly a special occasion and I am grateful for the experiences and the trust my clients enable me to document them. Thank you Emily and Kevin.
