Earlier this week, I shared Betty’s bridal session at the Barr Mansion. I’ve been working my way through their wedding images this week and *swoon* — I’m having the best week ever because these two are just so sweet and happy and in love.
Remember when I told myself at the beginning of the year that I’d push myself outside of my comfort zone? Well, I feel like 75% of my work is framed pretty closely around whatever is happening. I like moments and I don’t like there being a lot of distraction to take away from whatever is happening.
After Betty and Travis’ wedding ceremony, they were super emotional and excited and kept saying over and over, “OMG — we’re married!” A few tears were shed, but we finished up all of the family and bridal party photographs. Right before we began photos with the two of them alone, they received a phone call from a grandmother that hadn’t been able to attend the ceremony.
There were more tears.
Betty and Travis embracing each other and just being so overwhelmed by that moment.
So many photographs of this.
(I’ve tried desperately not to cry while looking through them.)
But when we were doing their photos, there was a moment when I felt like they just needed some space to take a moment and wipe away the tears.
And that’s around the time this happened.
I took a photograph that’s not like my “normal” photos. I walked away and gave them space. I feel so many things about this photo — proud that I took it, happy that I know these two, thankful for that beautiful sunset, and so grateful for love and sweet moments.
So… stay tuned for more of Travis and Betty’s Barr Mansion Wedding…
