I don't think anyone would disagree that a wedding day is all about the bride, and rightfully so don't you think? That being said, we can't overlook the guys! I was just scrolling through our blog looking at all the beautiful brides featured in our posts over the years and I realized we are leaving out the other half. A true shame too because those grooms and groomsman take some amazing wedding photos. Well, there is no time like the present! Here they are ladies; the men you now call your husbands and a few of their best friends.
I have to start with my favorite images from our wedding day shoots, the first-look photos. They are always so incredibly impactful from the groom's perspective. Look at Jon as he watches Sara walk down the aisle at their Winson Salem wedding. These two chose to have a true first look, spending the
whole day separate until Sara started her walk down the aisle. What you view here is Jon's genuine emotion as he see's his bride for the first
time on their wedding day. You see the same raw emotion from Peter as he watches Jenny make her way to him to say "I do."
Jon's first look of his beautiful bride, Alyssa, as she walks down the aisle at Davis Chapel at Wake Forest University.
Peter looks on as his bride, Jenny walks down the aisle to say "I do" at St. Mark's Catholic Church in Huntersville, North Carolina.
When we think of wedding details that are typically captured by photographers the things that come to mind are the
wedding gown, the bride's bouquet, the bride's heels...you see the theme? Detail photography is not just for the ladies! We could never exclude
the guys when it comes to capturing the intricacies of the day. Just look at Andrew's boutonniere below, such a simplistic, but elegant statement piece
that photographs beautifully. And of course coordinated accessories are going to produce amazing images. Testament below...Derek and his groomsmen
had to show off their coordinated socks for the camera.
Andrew and Emily chose a simple, but dramatic flower for the groom's boutonniere for their Charlotte NC wedding.

The groom and his groomsmen are the subjects of some incredible and dramatic wedding day images.
We don't just make the girls do all the work. I know you guys are familiar with DaLice and Britta, but I bet their groom's aren't quite as well known to our readers. Meet Greg and his groomsmen. Greg requested to have some urban photography included in his wedding day shoot, and of course we were happy to oblige. Romare Bearden Park is smack in the middle of Uptown and offers an amazing view of Charlotte's impeccable skyline. And as you know, we LOVE the Charlotte Skyline!

And here is Matt! As the wedding party was heading out after their wedding prep we stopped for this photo. The day was insanely windy as you can see, which added a bit of the unexpected and drama to this wedding image.
Matt and his groomsmen pose for a photo just before they leave for the wedding ceremony Rock Hill South Carolina.
So make sure you aren't underrating the guys on wedding day. Their role is just as important as the ladies, and we will work a little harder at testifying to that on the blog. ;-)
