Friday Find: Photo Edition

by Lauren J Sharkey

If there’s one thing I love, it’s wedding photos!  Seriously, nothing gives me greater joy than seeing the happiest day of someone else’s life (and secretly picturing myself in the white dress!).  Here are a couple of my favorites you might want to consider when choosing a wedding photographer!


I love this aerial view of the bride coming down the stairs, getting ready to walk down the aisle.

Beautiful bride photo! Love the tulle train and long veil.:

Every bride definitely needs to get a shot of them looking at the dress before getting ready!

I love the idea of getting a shot of the bride having a private moment before her life changes.

this would be the best pre-wedding shot... bride having time to just breathe before her life changes forever:
