It’s no surprise to my friends and clients that I have a tendency to tear up during heartfelt moments – and sometimes it takes everything in my power to stay focused when I’m working. It was nearly impossible during Maurie and Nikki’s amazing Unionville Vineyards celebration. From the “unplugged” ceremony where everyone was truly present and connected to those around them (vs. their devices), to their great friend Tracy performing the ceremony, to Maurie’s father singing “I Want to Know What Love Is”…it was a really special day. I wasn’t the only one crying.
One of my goals as a wedding photographer is to tell a story that makes viewers feel like they were there, and to document the day in a way that adds layers to the story for those who experienced it. One thing I can’t do is play the absolutely perfect soundtrack to put it all together – so open your music library, crank up Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way” nice and loud (just like these two did for their processional!) and enjoy.
