A wedding day is exciting to everyone involved. Of course the bride and the groom are super nervous, happy, excited and full of emotions on the day of, but we sometimes forget about the parents. They have watched their child grow up, witnessed all their milestones and are now ready to take that big step forward.
I remember this wedding from a few years ago. Everyone was all dressed and ready to go. We were getting ready for the formal photos and while some were chatting, others were making sure they looked good. We were standing on a small grassy field and figuring out the exact sequence of photos to be taken. I then noticed the groom and his mom talking. It only took a moment to see how proud she was of her son and while he joked around with her a little she couldn't help but tear up.
Being able to witness moments like these are why I'm a wedding photographer.
