We are in the business of story telling. We have the incredible honor of capturing such precious and invaluable moments in a couples life through photographs. Each of the wedding images we deliver has the ability to tell the story of that day, down to the minute and even the second that was eternalized in a photo. Time and time again we find that one of the most cherished images is the wedding ceremony kiss. And of course it is!
These newlyweds seal their love and wedding vows to one another with a final kiss at the Peninsula Club in Cornelius, North Carolina.
As you probably already know (it is a wee bit obvious, I guess), the kiss in the wedding ceremony is a symbolic expression of the love being sealed between husband and wife; a solidification of a bond. BUT, did you know that it was once, and surely still is by some, viewed as the sharing of spirits between partners, allowing two souls to become one. Either way this moment between the couple is most certainly one the most powerful we have the pleasure of capturing.

As I already said, we strive to allow our images to tell a story. We shy away from overly posed photographs, reaching to capture the genuine and true moments that occur throughout your wedding day. We want our wedding images to reflect your special day just as you remember it. While we are there to guide you and make sure you look your best ;-), we take a photojournalistic approach to our photography - meaning we aim to document the real moments of your wedding day as they transpire, making each wedding customized to the client which results in images that capture the raw emotions of the day.
Why is this so significant? Beacause it means that every time you flip trough your wedding album you will be taken back to that very moment you became husband and wife. Your wedding images will not just be photos, they will be art that will allow you to transcend the years as they pass and grab on to the specific way you felt in each moment. Especially that moment when you sealed your marriage with a kiss.
