Sometimes as a wedding photojournalist you get so involved into capturing the story of the day that you can’t help but feel every emotion that is happening in front of you. My biggest challenge for Sarah and AJ’s wedding was holding back my own tears. You learn so much about people as individuals when you spend an entire day deeply observing them. I learned just how beautiful both of these amazing individuals truly are. All the little details like where they come from,how they interact with their families, with each other, how they met, their deep spirituality and their love. It was just such a breathtaking experience to witness one of the most beautiful groom speeches, in his words, AJ mentioned how they met on the very altar that they got married at Amasa Stone Chapel, Case Western Reserve University. How special is that?
My wedding season is almost over, and I still have many weddings to blog. But I can honestly say that this is my most memorable wedding that I had the honor of capturing this year. I dedicate this post to Alan(AJ)’s grandmother who sadly past away shortly after wedding day. You can see her beautiful bright smile in the background of the black and white image of Sarah and AJ exiting the church.
