Megan and Sam were married on a beautiful July day at the church they grew up in. I was able to capture some of Megan’s getting ready moments of the day, as well as some special moments before the ceremony with her parents. Many people don’t realize the importance of photos BEFORE the ceremony, but I believe these moments are some of the most important. You’ll catch more candid moments while the bride (or groom) is getting ready with her closest friends and family than you will during a ceremony, which is usually more formal. You spend hours getting ready on your wedding day. Make sure you have a memory of it!
