And then comes the wedding day – it was a day that was filled with nothing but emotions. The moment Abigail walked down the aisle, James broke into tears. I believe it was the first time I’ve ever seen a groom crying with such raw emotions at a wedding ceremony. Throughout the whole day, I could see joyful tears on lots of faces. The way Abigail cried to James when they first had their little private moments right after the ceremony, and the time when Abigail squeezed her dad into a tight hug during the father-daughter dance – these were the moments that made this couple really special to capture and it touched me in so many ways.
As I went on to take family formals afterwards, I decided to do something a bit more creative. I put Abigail and James in the middle with both their parents standing on each side. When I asked all 3 couples to kiss their love, it came to me as a surprise when both parents started to make out with each other with endless passion as though it’s a competition. Interestingly, the newly weds were actually the most reserved ones standing in the middle and enjoying the show.
