Spring Love!


I love spring weddings!




This image always reminds me
of the nervousness 
that surrounds every wedding day.
Especially those last few minutes
 just before everyone starts down the aisle.

This was a spectacular day.
Bright late afternoon,
low humidity
(which is important here in the south)
The Gentlemen were 
stunningly stylish.
The late afternoon sun
was dipping low in the sky....
long shadows....very dramatic.

B/W images
help set the tone for the drama.
excitement,
nerves,
breathless,
hope.

Weddings
can 
bring a family together,
heal sore feelings,
mend old wounds,
or create new resentments,
break a family in two.

Yet,
if everyone 
spends their energies 
toward the goal of 
celebration of the 
beginning of a 
new family,
well.....
then 
it can be a 
very special moment in time.

  2. Black and white photography is my favorite....long shadows in the afternoon, my favorite picture time.

    These are beautiful. I should feature you in my blog on one of my Fridays. Interested? I work out ahead of my Friday posts so it would be probably 4 to 6 weeks from now. Let me know.

  3. Beautifully said, and so true. We're attending a spring wedding this year. It's always fun when you're not the mom worrying about everything.
