After 10 years in business, the little things make an impression. And, on a day designed to cater to a bride’s every whim, it is rare to see selflessness. But for Thera, she loves everyone around her, and one relationship — beside the one between her and her husband — stood out. Thera had taken on the role of a significant caretaker of her mom, who is disabled. When Thera put on her mom’s earrings, everyone watched and stayed quiet so mother and daughter could savor the moment.
But the rest of the time, it was party central in the bridal suite! The curls and waves in their hair bounced and they laughed together in excitement. As Thera was having her makeup and hair done, she decided to make it rain like a Boss, throwing dollar bills in the air! Between helping her mother get ready, and joking around with her best friends, I loved capturing Thera’s joyful and loving personality.
Thera’s brother Ryan used to go to my church in Wayne, so we have some history. Just this past year, however, he became an ordained Lutheran minister. (Proud of you Ryan!) It was great working with an officiant who knows the couple (and the photographer) so well. As a wedding photographer I love documenting the reactions of people in attendance and with such genuine interaction at the beautiful Lambertville Station, we have some quirky and fun moments between Thera and Geoff.
If you don’t know Lambertville, then check it out. Across from New Hope, it’s a quaint downtown, with lots of old shops and great restaurants. We used an old trolley car, and the water for some great portraits. And I have a great sunset shot just as it was going down. Congrats you two! We’re honored to have been there for you both!
