The officiant at Jenna and Phillip’s wedding summed up a wedding day in a way that so perfect matches how I feel about how I capture wedding photos. He said:

There aren’t many days of days. But this is one. Your wedding day. You remember where you were and what you wore. You know who you were with and exactly how you felt. It’s days like this when words are like poems and colors are most vibrant. These are the days the fill your mind with its clearest and fondest memories.

How good is that? And it’s so true! Weddings are days that engage the senses in every possible way. You see, you feel, you taste, you move, you remember. The emotions, the feelings, the connections, and the sense of place are all things I try to capture and artfully represent so that you don’t just have your wedding memories, but you also have your wedding photos.

Jenna, Phillip, and their families had a weekend of memories, and I was lucky enough to be there for many of them. Even if it rained throughout the day! So enjoy some of my favorites from Jenna and Phillip‘s elegant DAR wedding celebration!
