Overjoyed Wedding Recessional image! On the last day of every year we reach #1 of our Countdown of the Year’s Top Wedding Images. In honor of 2019, this year Liz and I each selected our top 19 images.
For me, a #1 wedding image has to embody everything about the couple, their day, the feel, the environment, their personalities, love, and emotion. It has to be a photo that, out of upward of sometimes as many as 1,000 finished images from a wedding, sums everything up in one shot, in that 1/500th of a second that the photo freezes in time. (A similar image was our #1 choice last year, too!)
Here are Emily and Jake, recessing from their Mouth Sunapee, New Hampshire wedding at the summit. Oh my word – all the feels for this couple, their families, friends, the wedding, the location, every single thing.
This image shows the radiant joy of these two. The laughs and joy they have here were much the entire 30 minutes of a wonderfully scripted ceremony by Elizabeth Levy. Laughs. More laughs. Tears of joy, tears of love.
We photograph weddings all the time, so in theory are somewhat hardened against emotion. Oh no, that was so not the case here.
I’m proud to present this as my #1 wedding image, my #1 fraction of a second of the nearly 150,000 images I took at weddings in 2019.
May 2020 bring the joy I had during 2019. It’s a tall order, and somehow, though it always manages to come through.
