Lauren and Tadd's Fayetteville Wedding Story

Hey everybody!

One of the reasons you (as a bride and groom) want to hire experienced photographers is that there are going to be some really special moments that collectively make up your wedding day. Untrained photographers don't know what to look for, or can't anticipate these moments, or are too busy fumbling with gear when they happen. I love my background as a photojournalist because it gives me the expertise to capture moments. Check out my favorite moments from Lauren and Tadd's wedding below!

Their first look had some really sweet (and some really funny) moments. I decided to show you the sweet one...

A staple in any wedding... the first kiss as husband and wife is such a special moment!
