As a bride, there are so many moments about your wedding day that blur together due to the excitement and exhilaration that you are experiencing. For me, it was not until I saw the proofs of Garrett’s photos that I realized how very true this is.
Garrett did an unbelievable job at capturing not only the moments that I had hoped for but all of the unexpected moments of the day as well. One photo in particular, that I will cherish for the rest of my life, is one that he took of my mother putting her pearl and diamond broach necklace on me as my something borrowed. I look at the photo everyday as it sits on my dresser and I am constantly reminded of exactly how I felt at that moment and how happy I was to share that moment with my mother. I feel this way about every photograph that he took. Within each one, I can feel the emotions jumping off the page and I love being reminded of how I felt that day. People thought that I was crazy for not getting a videographer but that has never been a regret of mine because with Garrett, I did not need a videographer. The pictures come to life on their own.
Other aspects of Garrett’s photography that were particularly meaningful to me were his attention to detail and his versatility. I loved that he focused on details of the dress, veil, shoes, jewelry as well as hand holding, laughter, and embraces. I did not feel as though any part of the day was lacking in photos from the time I started getting ready until things started to get a little rowdy on the dance floor. Amazingly, he is able to do all of this without even knowing that he is there.
After reviewing all of the photos, the moments that were once blurred became strikingly clear and I realized how fortunate I was that I chose the perfect photographer for one of the most important days of my life.
