“…we feel their love, even when we can only see it in photographs.”
Man, that statement right there is like a cue to turn on the waterworks. It’s hard to believe it has been seven years since I captured this moment between Kelly and her dad.
I remember standing at the end of the aisle, taking this picture, and feeling the love in the air.
I saved this photo for the final installment (at least for now) of these #caseyclicks stories because when I read Kelly’s response, I was in tears.
Then I read it to my wife…
And she cried.
So, I’m just warning you…
What do you think about when you look at this photo?
“This is one of my all-time favorite photos.
Every time I look at it, I am transported back to that moment and my dad’s embrace; I can feel his love and excitement all over again and I am still awed that his joy on my wedding day matched my own.
My husband and I had to move far from our families for work, and Casey captured the perfect reminder that our wedding united two loving families (that’s my husband’s very proud godfather looking on in the background) whose happiness and support strengthens our marriage–we feel their love, even when we can only see it in photographs.”
What do your wedding photos mean to you now, several years later?
“Seven years later, our photos are a priceless reminder of the fun we had celebrating our love with our friends and family.
Casey captured the spontaneity of intimate moments and raucous celebration that highlighted a very carefully planned day and they help us relive our wedding day year after year.
I am so grateful for how carefully every part of the day was documented for us!”
Hold on, it must be dusty in my office…give me a minute…
Okay, that’s better…
I must say, this whole process of curating the stories behind these photos and the feelings they evoke in the couples I’ve worked with has been very emotional for me.
I have a lot of thoughts about what I’ve learned from this process, which I will share in my next post on Friday!!
