It's Friday the 13th and what better way to celebrate than to post my most recent portrait session with the stunning Sierra. We strive to offer portrait sessions that are catered to your unique style and interests. Sierra has a love for anything dark and creating that spooky vibe made her session a blast! Below are just a few of the photos from her session. Enjoy!
There wasn't a traditional wedding party, but we still had fun taking photos with their close friends who helped make their special day possible.
Post ceremony shots were a breeze with this couple. I loved how each of them turned out.
Below are a few of my favorites!
I personally thought the grey and yellow decorations and suits/accesories looked fresh, modern, and quite stunning. Such a great choice on their part!
Dancing, dancing, and more dancing! What a great crowd and such a fun spirited group! This reception was a photographer's dream when it comes to the dancing photos.
I want to give a special thank you to Jon and Amos for allowing me to be a part of their
special day. I wish them a long life of happiness together.
This is part 9 of a 10 part wedding series.
Though dancing at weddings or celebrations can be traced back to ancient times, the idea of the "first dance" tradition we are accustomed to started as far back at the 17th century and was a part of an etiquette for balls that were held by wealthy families. It was customary for the guests of honor to have the first dance and afterwards everyone else could join them on the dance floor. Today the idea of a first dance is to signify the beginning of the reception for a newly married couple.
In recent years, the first dance has become more popular than the actual wedding ceremony and in some weddings it even takes more time and preparation than the wedding itself. Perhaps you prefer the more traditional first dance where you share in a special moment of swaying back and forth with your new spouse to a slow romantic song that is meaningful to the both of you. Others may choose to take dance lessons and surprise the guests at the reception with their ballroom dancing skills. For some the idea is to choose an upbeat pop song and perform a well practicied choreographed dance that will end up going viral on YouTube.
Let's not forget about the Father Daughter Dance!
