This was the final shot of the night, which ended up being my favorite of the entire event. I love nostalgia, and this one feels like a 50’s early 60’s photograph. A fun filled moment for the couple, well into their wedding reception.

This is my second favorite photograph of the day. Negative space in a photograph is such a positive! It give your eye room to breath and I love how the focus on the bride laughing, a “shot between the shot”
