Sometimes a wedding photo can stop you in your tracks, that happened to me more than once when looking through images of Tomina & Lance’s wedding in Levin on the weekend. I just love the first shot in the preview below that we caught of Tomina and her Dad walking her up the aisle to see Lance for the first time that day. Tomina is staring straight at Lance and her Dad is focused on his beautiful daughter. It’s a wonderful moment and one that I’m proud to have captured for them.
The other shot that literally stopped me in my tracks is the last photo in the post. The shot of Tomina and Lance practicing their first dance on Waitarere Beach against a warm orange sunset. We were lucky enough to be down there just after 8:30pm to catch the amazing sunset and had them do a quick twirl on the glassy sand from the outgoing tide. I’ve managed to capture a moment where there hands meet above Tomina’s head that is perfectly framed by the sun. When I saw this shot on my screen as I was downloading the cards it blew me away, that little moment when you forget to breathe and can only sit and stare at the image in front of you. It was such a stunning moment captured in the most spectacular scenery. This one photo reinforces the value of a still image to me. While I do love capturing wedding video for people this photo is proof that a single moment in time is equally as powerful when trying to tell a story.
To Tomina & Lance – Thank you for allowing us to capture your wedding day for you.
