A Big Day for Mom.

A mother and a father have an incredible stake in any wedding event. They can spend the last many years wondering who will be the one that will pledge themselves to honor their baby for the rest of their lives. Being a father, I can not yet imagine the joy, fear and trust that goes into accepting another at their word… The special day IS about the bride and groom… but there are others that are having their lives eternally changed… why not honor them by telling a bit of their story. Juli and I have had the joy of photographing very honest and reflective moments of the parents of the bride and groom. We have watched a mother of the groom pace back and forth in a small hotel room as she waits her tern to have her makeup done… so nervous and excited. This image above is a quiet moment… one that only two people experienced… mom and the makeup artist… Just outside of this room at the Gorge Crest Vineyards, the wedding day was bustling energetically, but in this room, there was a reflective moment deserved a stoppage of time. A moment that reminds us that we are not the only ones affected by love and commitment. These are the moments that help up tell all of your story…
