As wedding photographers, Kevin and I experience so many beautiful and intimate moments between our couples and their family & friends. We feel humbled to be present during the heartfelt speeches, dances, toasts, gift-giving, dress-zipping, and loving times throughout the wedding day. Many of the weddings we photograph keep to the western tradition of fathers playing a prominent role throughout the day, especially during the highlights of giving away the bride and dancing with her. During these moments Kevin and I usually tear up, affected by the love of fathers and their daughters. It's an incredible perk of this job to witness love and emotion between people we've recently met, something we consider an honor.
So for Father's Day here in the states, we want to toast all those remarkable fathers, step-fathers, father-in-laws, surrogate fathers, father figures, family-fathers, brother-fathers, sister-fathers, mother-fathers, grandfather-fathers, father-friends, fathers who have passed away, and every other type of father who has been there and loved their daughters and sons.
