Best of 2013…

This past year has been full of excitement and change both personally and professionally. I married my best friend, created a new website, photographed 26 amazing weddings, moved to Boston and met some terrific people along the way. For all of you that made this last year so memorable…thank you! It is greatly appreciated. Here are some of my favorite photographs from this past year. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!Bridal Hair Accessories Silver Wedding Shoes

Why I am Wedding Photographer…

Each week, I struggle to write a few sentences that accurately describe the weddings and sessions I share on this blog. I struggle to write in a way that gets my true thoughts and feelings on being a wedding photographer across and I struggle to write about myself. It is my personal goal to get over this and write freely without hesitation. But when I came across this article written by a fellow wedding photographer, Anne Almasy, I just had to share it. Because she perfectly encapsulated  WHY I am a wedding photographer in these words below …1.Boston_Wedding_Photographer_Gina_Brocker_Bride_With_Father“As I think back on the hundred-plus weddings I’ve photographed, I want to emphasize this:

Every wedding is perfect.

I love a good party.
I love a bride in the most elaborate, fancy, princess-y dress you’ve ever dreamed of.
I love custom chuppahs and embroidered aisle runners and matchy-matchy bridesmaids dresses.
I love to photograph flowers and shoes.

But you know why I REALLY do what I do?

To photograph your parents, who will hold hands and cry on the first row of the chapel. To photograph your sister dancing with that boy she will marry in three years. To photograph those kids who will grow up so, so quickly. To photograph your grandfather, who will pass away next spring. To photograph your first kiss as a married couple, your best friend busting out her signature dance moves, the flower girl asleep under a table, and maybe even your ex looking pretty wistful as he hugs you a little too long in the receiving line.

You already know: your cake will disappear in less than an hour, your flowers will wilt before the ceremony ends, and that uncomfortable tux will go back to the rental place in the morning. But those photos… they’re gonna be there forever. You’ll have them when your own kids are born, when you have the biggest fight ever with your partner and need to be reminded of how much you really love each other, when your parents pass away and you realize the last time you danced with them was at your wedding…

So, nothing against the wedding magazines and blogs and their endless, passionate quest for “perfect” detail shots. PLEASE: throw the party of your lives with every. single. detail. EXACTLY as you dreamed it would be.

But my job — MY job — is to see past all that. My job is to give you photos that will remind you why you had that damn expensive party in the first place.

If you’re planning your wedding right now, please just close the magazine. Log out of Pinterest. And look at the person you want to grow old with. Remind yourself of why you’re doing this. And really CELEBRATE when that day comes. Don’t stress about your shoes or your cake or your flowers. Don’t stress about anything. When it’s all over, you will be married, and surrounded by the people who know you and love you most in the whole wide world.

I promise: that is the Perfect Wedding.”

– Anne Almasy

I hope you have a tasty meal, great company and loads to be thankful for this Thanksgiving! Happy Turkey Day!
