Bigger isn’t always better

Posted on September 29th, by Becca in wedding life. 6 comments

I had the pleasure of shooting two very small intimate weddings at the beginning of the month.  I love it when I have the opportunity to be a part of ceremonies like these, because, not only is it a change of pace from my usual 10 hour gig, but I always feel even more honored to be let in to this space and time that is made up of only a select few important people.
Both couples wanted just about an hour of photojournalistic coverage, and then some fun portraits.

I’ll start with Dina and Tracey…


Now this picture just makes me laugh.  Here are Dina and Tracey’s good friends who were witnesses at the wedding.  I’m always asking people to “connect” with their bodies somehow to avoid looking really formal, but then I admitted that I might have made them look like they were posing for a prom picture…to which they responded by saying “we DID go to prom together”…then they laughed like this…


And now Liz and Guy…

Liz got the sweetest text from Guy earlier that morning, and every time she read it it made her smile

  1. I love these pictures so much – I nearly cried looking at them. Especially the last one. Wow.

    Thank you and I look forward to the rest of them.

  2. Thanks, Becca, you did an awesome job and I can’t wait to see all of the photos! I LOVE the photo of Kat and Mike too :)
