Sometimes an article is so good it spreads like wildfire on Facebook. This particular article is from Anne Almasy, an award-winning, amazingly talented photographer on why she really photographs weddings. It has nothing to do with the details and everything to do with life. It is so powerful that I just had to share it here.
This is my favorite part:
“But you know why I REALLY do what I do?
To photograph your parents, who will hold hands and cry on the first row of the chapel. To photograph your sister dancing with that boy she will marry in three years. To photograph those kids who will grow up so, so quickly. To photograph your grandfather, who will pass away next spring. To photograph your first kiss as a married couple, your best friend busting out her signature dance moves, the flower girl asleep under a table, and maybe even your ex looking pretty wistful as he hugs you a little too long in the receiving line.” –Anne Almasy

Anne Almasy summed it up pretty perfectly. Photographing weddings is more than the details. It’s the moments. It’s the people. It’s life.
Have a wonderful day,
