Two of the four images in the latest Brides are from an absolutely incredible wedding in Colorado that I shot this past year. It was my first trip to Colorado, and I'm dying to go back. No one told me, though, that in the middle of the summer there it rains every day at about 4 o'clock, and it rained through the entire ceremony! I used my only non-electronic camera- an antique Rolleiflex, but it gave me my favorite shot of the day!

Anytime I'm shooting a portrait of a couple, I have to remind myself to go in close, and to go far away. I shoot with mostly longer lenses, so I've actually run fifty feet in the other direction to get this shot. But I'm also leaving them alone. And I'm giving them a moment. And you can tell.

On this wonderful wedding day, the groom had left his wedding shoes in the taxi, along with the marriage license! I love this photograph, because despite all of the chaos and stress, the couple was completely consumed by one another. It is a very quiet and peaceful shot, going in for the kiss, and you want to go in there right with them.
