A bride and her mother in the dressing room.  These are the moments I love the most about weddings. I tend to post more of the wide, dramatic art pieces fit for printing large and hanging on the wall, but these photojournalistic moments are the most rewarding for me personally, even if they're never printed large. They tell the story of the day, of the relationships involved, and hopefully bring back a small trickle of the emotions that were overflowing. I enjoyed every second of my time with Rachel and her sweet as can be mom. I wish we could do it all over again!

This photo was made with my 70-200 lens, which has quickly become my favorite wedding day lens. I usually do not like zoom lenses, but when you have to move fast in those photojournalist moments, it really helps to be able to change composition without moving. And the image stabilization ensures that camera shake won’t cause soft images even shooting at 1/125th of a second hand held at 200mm. I processed this photo in Photoshop CS6 to create a soft look (low contrast) fitting for the tender moment.

Thanks to SarahWilliams for bringing me along.
