two moments – Kim and Mike

I would like to thank our many blog followers for being patient.  It has been a busy summer and we have quite a few blog posts coming in the near future – I certainly need to play catch up on our posts.

We often document rehearsals and I love the ability to walk around and get close.  The Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Richmond, Virginia is a beautiful place with a plethora of space and a lot of ambient light.  Our “one moment” post of the day turned into two moments when Mike was reciting his vows.  He was repeating the words of the Deacon and when he said, “for richer or poorer,” Mike repeated the phrase, “for richer”……and stopped.  It was a lighthearted, funny exchange after which, Kim reminded Mike that it was funny at the rehearsal, but wouldn’t be funny tomorrow……all in good fun, of course.  I really love the smirk on Mike’s face in both photographs as the moment unfolds.

Rehearsals certainly allow photographers to roam in an unobtrusive, but different, fashion and allow for different images than we would obtain at a wedding.  They often show a relaxed, fun, side of the couple and wedding party that can be sightly altered (in a good way, of course) during the real nuptials.
