Happy New Year, blog-readers! At just over two weeks into the year, we can still say Happy New Year, right?! Or is it so old by now? Well, I’m a little behind in blogging and kind of out of the habit, so I hope you’ll forgive me. I still have a few things on my list that I’d like to blog, but first, I thought it would be fun to do something a little different. I asked my 2011 wedding clients to chose their favorite wedding images and why! Their selections and words made me smile over and over again, and I’d like to share the responses here with you.
Amy, of Amy & Scott: “My favorites were the large shots of the ceremony where you can see the whole place and the ones that you took outside in the gardens when we’re walking on the path and Scott has my flowers and I’m holding up my dress.”
Alexis, of Alexis & Scott: “Picking our favorite two photos was not an easy task! Are you sure you don’t want me to pick 500? We decided that each of us would pick one photo. Scott picked the one of the two of us during our first dance. The look on my face says it all. Pure bliss …”
“I picked the one of us out in the field after the ceremony. As I’m sure you remember it rained EVERY weekend in May this year and by the grace of God it cleared up and was beautiful on the 21st. The colors in this photo take my breath away every time I see it.”
Lindsay, of Lindsay & Mike: “What a fun request! We had a REALLY hard time with this, as we truly love all the photos. So it’s not all that original, especially as you articulated so well what we feel about the photo. Our favorite image is the one where Mike is sticking out his tongue at me. It’s lighthearted, not taking ourselves too seriously and truly us – we like to laugh, and Mike’s a pro at making that happen. And it doesn’t hurt the beautiful flowers pop so well.”
Reina, of Reina & Dave: “It’s such a happy photo! I love that the photo is all grey in the background and we bring all the color to the picture! Oh and it became our photo for our holiday cards!”
“A sense of relief! This was toward the end of our reception and I think at this moment I realized that everything had gone smoothly: we were married, the dance went well, the wedding went well… We’re surrounded by his parents and my best friend. It’s a perfect picture.”
“One of my favorite human beings (and my sister, hehe!). What a cool photo!!! Truly a gem and I was so surprised by the beauty!Thank you Chris!”
Debbie & Adam chose this next image, and it’s one of my favorites, too! So classic:
Adria, of Adria & Avi: “Well, if this isn’t a nearly impossible question to answer, I don’t know what is! There are too many to choose from. I would say, the photo of my niece fixing my dress has stolen everyone’s heart (and, since she was the only one to straighten my train all day, she gets a giant gold star).”
“Another favorite would be Avi dipping me during our first dance. I would also include all of the pictures in your blog post from our wedding, and about 200 others if I could.”
Thanks to all of my amazing 2011 couples (including the ones who didn’t get a chance to choose their favorites yet!) for such a fantastic year. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude. Chris and I are truly blessed to have met each of you, and loved working with/getting to know you. Thank you again, from the very bottom of my heart!
