I believe I mentioned this once or twice before – the first dance is my favorite part of any wedding. Up until that moment, the bride and the groom are too busy to be with each other – they have to worry about dresses, flowers, tuxedos, guests, ceremony and all the other stuff that makes up a wedding. The moment the first dance starts, the bride and the groom belong to each other; it`s just them on the dance floor and no one else exists. I love watching newlyweds` expressions when they dance their first dance.
Last weekend I had the honor of photographing a beautiful Russian Orthodox wedding. The ceremony took place at the St. Gregory`s Russian Orthodox Church in Homestead; I`ve never photographed there before, but as soon as I walked through the front doors, I fell in love with this tiny, off-the-main-beat church. I only had a few minutes to snap a couple of frames before the ceremony began. Hopefully I`ll have an opportunity to photograph there again so that I could capture all the amazing details.
When Jordyn`s mom hired me to photograph Jordyn`s Bat Mitzvah, she told me that Jordyn wants to be a photographer. So, I brought my old Polaroid Land Camera to the photoshoot…
Check out this beautiful bride… and the groom ain`t so bad either.
