Photographs are one of the most important aspects of our wedding. Since we have a while to plan (so that all of the ideas that have been running through my head all these years can come to fruition) I’ve been looking at images that really speak to me to show potential photographers. I want to make sure that someone can capture the mood of the wedding and our love for each other. We don’t want to see each other before the ceremony, so it’s extremely important for us to have those “first look” photos captured while the ceremony is taking place. Then of course there are the obligatory portraits that will happen during cocktail hour. With only an hour to get all of them in, we have to make sure to choose someone who really gets us. Here are the photos that are bringing me pretty darn close to tears this Wedding Wednesday.
