I love weddings. What photographer doesn’t say that? I honestly can’t put it into words how much i sincerely enjoy them: therefore I take pictures, and hopefully that expresses my wedding joy more than words can.
One of my favorite parts of the wedding day is those few moments before the wedding ceremony, when everyone is just hanging out together: eating, talking, praying, and…waiting.
I love the waiting part.
Waiting is underestimated. Waiting always comes with a negative connotation, but sometimes it shouldn’t. For example, my favorite season is probably spring. The snow starts melting, birds start singing again, days are longer, and I mostly love spring because all of these things cause me to have this great anticipation for summer (the season that I REALLY love).
My favorite day of the week: Friday. Not because I have to go to work, but because I know that when I get home I have the whole weekend to look forward to.
Waiting builds excitement.
The short 45 minutes or so after all the hustle and bustle and pictures and getting hair done and putting on makeup that happens before the wedding is where time actually does slow down..just for a bit. And everyone involved in the wedding has to stop.
