Wedded Bliss


As soon as I saw her dress, I knew I needed to photograph her nursing her 14-month old son. I set her on the chair, she began nursing and I "saw" the colors grow with adding the bouquet and ring bearer's pillow (don't all nursing women use pillows anyway?). I ended up taking about 50 photos from 3 different angles. In most of the photos, she is tenderly looking at her son. This is the only photo in which she is smiling and, in my opinion, is the absolutely most exquisite one of all.

Besides my daughter's wedding, this was the first wedding I photographed. The bride is a family member and a client (Read her birth story here), so most of the people at the wedding knew me, which makes it easy to click the shutter and have beautiful photos come into being.

I know most of you will adore this as I do - and yes, I will be submitting this for publication.

I just found your blog today, blogsurfing, I don't remember exactly who from.

This picture (and all your pictures, but I fell in love with this one) is amazing.

I'm reading back through your archives, and greatly enjoying it. Glad to have found you.
