My Favorite Wedding Moments of 2016

Even though I love a good portrait, I firmly believe that moments are what matter most. In fact, when I photograph portraits of my couples on their wedding day, my goal is to simply create beautiful space for natural moments to unfold. My hope on a wedding day is for brides and grooms to be able to look back and remember the people they spent it with and the love they shared, not how I posed them to perfection. So even though I play a role in setting up a space for moments to occur, my favorite things on a wedding day are unscripted. Big laughs and the moment you wipe away a tear. The way your groom looks at you and the way you smile back. These moments are what weddings are all about, and the following photographs were my absolute favorite moments of 2016.
