Out of all the photos I took this weekend at my friend’s wedding, this image stands out the most. The reason? It tells a story. The groom really wanted a pair of Chucks, so the bride surprised him with a pair and hid them in his stuff, then he found them while he was getting ready for the ceremony and sent her a text message. I was lucky to be in the room the moment it happened … I just love the expressions in the background and the big smile from Jessie, the bride.

Pretty pictures are nice, and I like to think that I took quite a few of those at the wedding as well, but the photos that tell a story are the ones we will cherish the most.
