As a wedding photographer in the metro Detroit area I get to be a part of some very intimate moments. Let me tell you that it is an honor I do not take lightly. Getting to witness that kind of candid love up close and personal is heart warming for me because I believe in love.
I believe in all forms of love. The kind of love you have for a friend, the kind of love you can have for total strangers, family , people you connect with for brief moments or lifetimes. My husband and my marriage has shown me the different layers that love can have. How it goes from excitement to thrill to mind-blowing and true, peaceful, you really are my soul mate type of love. Some people find this kind of love early in life, some people find it later. Some people find it but only for a short while and some people learn to find it in themselves. Love is present, it’s a vulnerable thing, but when you find it you hang on to it with everything you have.
I got to be the wedding photographer at Jason & Cortney’s wedding and it was the kind of ceremony that one feels honored to witness! Their happiness during these kind moments was intoxicating because you could feel that their love for each other was deep, honest, kind and most definitely the forever kind of love.
One thing that struck me was how humbled they were by it all. This, this is what it looks like when you don’t take for granted the love this life gives you.
There were so many tender, candid moments. Like when her kids walked her down the isle. Or when he surprised her with something you just can’t put a price tag on.
The first dance ..
Or when they took a minute to sit as a family, enjoy the scene and take in all that grace.
Being a wedding photographer means I get tp capture moments like this, candid, classy moments that mark new beginnings and the kind of thrill that only real love can bring.
