A large part of my job on your wedding day is to make sure the photos are telling the story of you. That includes your likes, dislikes, personality traits, and how you show love to family and friends. Getting genuine expressions out of Michelle and Ben was an easy task. Their wedding day was filled with smiles, laughter, tears, and hugs.

The best piece of wedding day advice I can pull from them is to remember that I’m there to document the day. It’s the imperfect moments and unexpected displays of emotions that really create a day you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Couples that can ignore my presence and just be themselves are generally happier with their images than couples who are overly concerned with how they’re going to look in the photos. So just relax and soak in your day!
