This is one of my favorite B&W images from 2009. I l pride myself on being a photojournalist during the day and capturing the moments as they unfold because for me, it’s all part of telling a wedding story. Here’s the backstory for this photo.
The bride is running late and Chris has been left alone in the Sacristy by his best man while he went to check on the limo and it’s whereabouts. There was joking and small talk to kill the nerves, but once Chris was alone he became still and held his hands together almost like he was in prayer. He had the 1000 yard stare and realized the magnitude of the day. When Chris saw this photo in their gallery he just laughed and said “Man, I was really worried that she realized she could do better!”
