I clearly remember saying that I was going to post wedding photos of my darling daughter, Niki and my much loved son-in-law, Tim. I’m not sure why that was such a hard post to write because I had so many hundreds of beautiful photographs of that wonderful day.
Maybe it’s because I had so many images from the day to look at and sort through… so many that I could not stop staring at, remembering the precise moment and what was said at that time, and the emotions just would well up and start leaking from my eyes.
I can’t say enough about the fabulous wedding photographer who captured the beauty and emotions in that day. And, I can’t chose which are my favorites because they all are unique moments in a day so filling with love and happiness. Carly has such an eye and talent for using lighting and angles to compose the most beautiful photographic album that I’ll link to her blog so that you can share some of those moments with us: http://www.carlymichelleblog.com/home/2015/8/31/the-crane-estate-ipswich-wedding-boston-wedding-photographer
I love digital photography. You can snap away taking any number of photos not worrying about wasting film or the cost of developing. You can crop and enhance making a photograph into a perfect portrait. But I still spent a lot of time printing out so many of these photographs because for me, some things need to be held in my hands. Those of my generation have great albums of special times in our lives but we also have shoe boxes full of loving memories, people who were part of our lives. On rainy or snowy days I love opening those old shoe boxes and holding the images in my hands. I feel as if I’m holding a loved one once again and the fading and wrinkles add a patina that grows more beautiful with age. So, definitely embrace digital photography and be sure to have as many special photographs of important moments in your life – but print out special people and moments that you can hold in your hands and remember holding that person once again.
And, just as I was finally able to put words to (digital) paper, the videographer finalized the highlight film clip … and the minute I heard the music, the waterworks started all over again:
As you watch the video clip, you may not know the people but I hope that it might remind you of memories of your own and prompt you to find the shoebox of old photos or home movies that you haven’t thought about in ages. Thanks for sharing our amazing day.
