One of my favorite things to photograph on a wedding day is the preparation. There is such an energy surrounding the final moments before a wedding ceremony. There are many things that you know will happen: the bride will be put into her dress, veil will be put into place, the men will have boutineers pinned on. But there are these in between moments we are always waiting for. The real emotion that is captured, not created.
There is a lot of love in this photo between the bride and her mom. It makes me smile every time I see it.
