the one: kathleen + joey

{by Ed}


Hello again blog reader(s)!

Welcome to another installment of “the one” series.  If you’re new to the blog, or just don’t remember why we highlight photos this way, read this post to get up to speed.

I’ve talked before about why I love being Amy’s second shooter and how I love photographing weddings and this post just further emphasizes both of those points.  Kathleen and Joey’s wedding was nothing but love, emotion, and happiness!  My job, as a second shooter, is to capture those candid moments for the couple to relive over and over again, and the photo below is one of many that will allow Kathleen and Joey  to do just that.

One huge benefit to us being male and female photographers is that it enables Amy to be with the bride and bridesmaids while they are getting ready, and it enables me to be with the groom and groomsmen while they are hanging out (because it only takes the guys 5 minutes to get ready 😉 ).

This photo was taken just before the ceremony was about to begin. The guys had been hanging out in this room throughout the day reminiscing about the good ol’ days and talking about what a wonderful day it had been and how they couldn’t wait for the rest of the day to happen.  They decided to gather around and say a special prayer for Joey and his soon-to-be wife and for an amazing life together. I moved out of their way to give them privacy and space and noticed the word “praise” on the wall behind them.  Since it seemed to fit this particular moment so well, I composed the shot to include the perfect symbol for the emotion being shared.


Praying Right Before the Ceremony



Here’s to sharing unforgettable moments with your closest friends and to taking the time to just hang out once and a while!
