Alli & Jon's wedding was of course, nothing short of amazing. The beautifully renovated Fishermen's Inn was the perfect backdrop to a beautiful Spring day. The sun was shining and all things were new. Kate and I photographed their day, and the smiles and love were contagious (as usual - see their engagement shoot for example!) On this sneak peek post, I also have included some of Kate's beautiful shots -- I have to give a shout out to my second photographers (both present and past - Stephanie, Missy, Tara, Melissa, Jenny, Brad...I love you all). They are so amazing and help make Hazelton Photography that much more awesome. :D What I love about my second shooters is that, in giving them creative freedom, they are able to use their style along side of mine, and capture moments, angles, light, glimpses that I may not see from my point of view. The result is a much deeper set of photographs that can become art from life itself. Weddings are fun, large parties, sometimes family reunions, and sometimes they can get a stigma attached to them of being traditional or cheesy. But in my mind, and my heart, they embody what is best about life - a celebration of love itself. How can we say that art can not come from that?
I've included a note beneath each photograph my photo partner took, to give her credit for her top-notch (sorry I kept saying amazing and couldn't think of any other synonyms, haha!) creativity and her ability to inspire me to be a better photographer (along with all of my second shooters and photographer friends). Thank you. And Thank You to Alli & Jon for being such an amazing, easygoing, faith filled, loving, strong couple. You are forever. <3
