Captain of the Ship – Denver Based Photographer

We went back down south (great song) this last month to see best friends, photograph a wedding, and experience Springtime in Arkansas!

Man… What a beautiful place. This wedding was spectacularly designed and it lifted my soul to experience such a beautiful covenant being created! It had been a while since I had photographed a wedding (coming out of winter I always feel like this.) The weather was a sunny and 75 degree day and LOVE WAS IN THE AIR! 

Every time I get behind the camera my “business persona” steps in.  I feel like I’m the captain of the ship! Everyone is looking to you to follow the pre-set schedule, document every little thing they put their whole heart into, and to find the lost members of the bridal party or track down the family members. Part of me loves that my brides give have so much trust in me to be the captain and not let the ship sink!

The other part is scared every single time. What if the ship sinks? It really keeps me on my toes!

And that is yet another reason why I love photographing weddings! 

Enjoy these photos!

    The captain of the ship is a great metaphor! I really love the detail in her wedding dress and the movement in her hair during the couples portraits!
