Bride's Choice: favorite images as chosen by the bride!

After every wedding, Lori and I collect our favorite images together from the day and put them here on the blog. Most of the time, our favorites are also our bride and groom's favorites as well. It's a testament to why they chose us in the first place - what we see and show you, is what we love to deliver.

But sometimes it's fun to hear from you on what other images from your wedding day, resonated with you. So, I asked a few of our brides for their favorites. Today, I'm sharing some of Jessica's favorites. She gave me quite a list of them! I'm so glad we were able to give them so many wonderful images to cherish their day by.

So in no particular order, here's a few of Jess's favorites, and in her own words, why she loves them:

This picture is important to me because it captured the emotion that was felt amongst the day of a dad giving his only daughter away. It was a picture that captured all of the emotions, including the happiness and love my mother felt at the “first glance” with my father.

Left: We LOVE this picture. The angle/place in which the picture was taken shows yet again, the level of creativity Lori and Erin have in capturing such special occasions and moments! This picture we used as our “Thank You” card photo and it received A LOT of compliments!

This is the first dance taken through stair rails. We really love the angle in which this photo was taken. It is definitely not a traditional, “staged” photo. The girls added a photojournalistic touch to taking the photo and it’s very unique!

Keith (Groom) Wiping his Eyes: This picture really shows the emotion that Keith felt as he watched his Best Man video from his Best Friend, Carl, who was deployed in Afghanistan during our wedding. When Carl finally returned home, he was able to see what a touching and amazing video he had created for his best friend.

Left: The father-daughter dance. My father means the absolute world to me. He was the first man in my life and will always be my biggest fan. Being able to see the love my father had for me in this photo will be one I cherish forever. Right: The mother-son dance. Keith and I really enjoy seeing the laughter he and his mom had during their dance. They aren’t very “serious” people, so this picture really showed their personalities and joy they had.

Our Family Photos: While these photos were “staged,” these two photos are two very important photos to Keith and I. These photos serve as a constant reminder to us that our families are the most important to us. Without our families, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Our parents have been our biggest inspirations and biggest supporters to each of us and we are so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives.
