Prior to my wedding, I was warned many times to cherish my time during, as it would all be a blur. I didn’t truly understand that concept until the actual event. The silver lining on my foggy memory of this day in my life was Kirstie.
I didn’t really have a choice in choosing Kirstie…. You see, once you’ve followed her Facebook page for any time at all, you begin to understand that her pictures have a way of evoking and capturing emotion from a uniquely imaginative perspective. Don’t get me wrong, there are many great photographers out there. They take great photos; however, once seeing Kirstie’s work, there was no other option.
What I have from my wedding isn’t a collection of photos, it’s a collection memories from arguably the best day of my life. Kirstie was able to capture the emotion I felt, the happiness in my heart, the laughs of the crowd, and the magical love of a grandfather for his granddaughter.
Only once in my life have a cried from a photo, and this photo was of my first dance with my mother. The picture itself is alive in me because it captures something I could never see from my perspective at the moment, utter bliss.
Great writers do to literature what Kirstie does for photography. I am not a great writer, so I hope my brief review was enough for you to look through her collection as proof of the aforementioned.
-As a side note, it would be remiss of me not to mention her organization and preparation.
Kirstie kept us on time, herded the sheep when needed, and did her absolute best to balance time spent on photos with time for us to enjoy the wedding. She also met with us twice before the wedding in order to get a feel for me and my fiancé’s chemistry. It was this attention to detail that enabled her to understand what she was capturing.
