So, Its been a long time since I cried at a wedding while I was shooting it. I normally have my game face on and I’m thinking about the lighting and catching the right moments, and all kinds of technical photography stuff running through my brain. But, every once in a while there is a point that makes me realize that not only do I love photographing weddings, but that I am genuinely invested in these couples for who they are. Leave it to two of my previous brides who happen to be sisters, and the cousins of the bride, to give one of the best bridesmaid speeches I have ever witnessed. It makes me happy to have been part of their weddings, know their families, and to now shoot Meredith and Matt’s wedding. We knew that shooting Meredith and Matt was going to be great, and we were right. The ceremony was held in Lumberton, NJ and the reception followed at the Collingswood Ballroom. Right in between the ceremony and reception was a quick thunderstorm that passed through but it definitely didn’t put a damper on this party. Meredith and Matt did a spotlight dance, and I have so many favorite shots from the dance that I had to put a bunch in this blog post. I am so grateful that we were able to be part of their day.
