This is probably the thing I like most about weddings. Capturing all the amazing moments that occur throughout the day. These can range from simple hugs, to laughter to kids running around, pretty much anything is fair game. To me it really is all about the moments. Its the moments that tell a story about family, friendship and sometimes character. From the perspective of a photographer there are so many personalities to capture. I spend most of the wedding capturing small moments as they come as well as capturing all the must have photos. During the reception or in-between the ceremony and reception I like to see what's going on. Lots of time there are small stories in the crowd and not only up on the altar.
These are but a handful of such moments.
So that's all for now. Its fun looking back at some weddings I've done. And my evolution as a wedding photographer continues. 2014 has begun and a new wedding season will begin soon. Its going to be a blast. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Part V - Candid Moments
The reception is always a super fun time. The newly married couple get to enjoy some time with family and friends and can relax a little. As I am more of a documentary photographer I like to observe and let the reception unfold. I pick a lens that allows me to be a little bit further away from the couple as indoors I don't like to be in their way. And, I mainly walk the room to see what kind of photos I can get.
Each wedding is different of course, but the reception is where the "action" is.
Both outdoor and indoor receptions are just plain fun!
And this is another very fun reception.
As part of the Mass Audubon the Broad Meadow Brook Conservation Center & Wildlife Sanctuary is a fantastic place to explore if you happen to be in Worcester, MA. Its sad to say that I've lived in Worcester now for over 10 yrs and have never visited before. I'd heard of Mass Audubon, but generally never found myself on that part of Worcester when doing my photography outings. Luckily my Aunt encouraged me to go visit.
Yes, its the middle of winter, but I was very curious to check it out and explore. The staff there was really nice about showing me a map, letting me know some of the things they have to offer and encouraged me to take some photos which I could later share with them. I gave them a business card and let them know I'd be posting this.
At only around 18 degrees out I was the only one walking the path. Not a problem at all as I was able to explore at my leisure and not have to worry about getting anyone in my shots.
For most of the first trail there was a rope hand rail to help you around the path. As I found out there were at least 5 different trails you could take. Some were rather short while the longest was about 5 miles. I walked one of the shorter trails this time as it got pretty cold.
There were several places for people to stop and sit and also for children to play. There were some educational panels at well throughout the path.
So I continued to walk on the path and looked for interesting things to photograph.
I passed a couple streams as well. These were pretty frozen.
I then followed the loop and headed back.
I will definitely be coming back in the Spring to check out the wildlife. I hear there is tons to see when the trees are in full bloom and the weather is warmer. Also, I'd like to take the long trail next time as I'm sure I missed a lot.
Of course the ceremony is the most important part of the wedding. The couple has been waiting for this moment for a long time and its now here! From small wedding to large wedding this is a time to sit back and witness a truly special moment.
Outdoor ceremonies can be so much fun.
Wedding ceremonies indoors are also a lot of fun to photograph.
This next wedding was on a beach in Martha's Vineyard.
This next wedding was outside at the Danversport Yacht Club.
