BEST OF 2016 WEDDINGS // preparation portraits

Amidst the hustle and bustle of wedding-day prep, these are a few quiet moments I found with my Brides and Grooms in 2016. 

I love these special hours leading up to a wedding. There is an air of anticipation, with each hotel room or home filled with friends, family and so much excitement. The girls are primping and popping champagne while the boys are often cracking jokes over a few beers. There are love letters exchanged, tears shed, dresses zipped-up and ties straightened. I just love taking this time to focus on candid portraits and details, because every little moment feels so special.
