The Cornerstone

Black and white photography offers a chance to evoke the purity of content and emotion, and an effective way to portray two people deeply in love.  I was so honored to be part of Makenzie and Steve's wedding day, including their final preparations in the morning.  I am also grateful to fellow photographer, Angela Romano, who assisted throughout the day, capturing beautiful images like this first photo of Makenzie below.  Our job as photographers is to tell a story through our images.  I believe the following images capture a beautiful beginning to Makenzie and Steve's story...


Reading their letters to each otherIn their final and reflective moments alone, Makenzie and Steve expressed their love in written letters to each other.


Keeping to wedding day tradition, Makenzie and Steve decided to not see each other on their wedding day, until the moment she would finally walk down the aisle.  During their morning preparations, each took time out to reflect on their wedding, and read the letters they had mutually prepared to express their love to each other.


Reading their letters to each otherIn their final and reflective moments alone, Makenzie and Steve expressed their love in written letters to each other.


As their preparations drew to a close, one last moment remained...a special opportunity for Makenzie and Steve to come together (still unseen) and hold each other's hand "around the corner" while praying for God's blessings on their new life together.  With emotions (and nerves) now elevated, Steve waited behind the stone pillar as he heard the commotion building around him.  His beautiful bride had just arrived and was now standing only inches away on the other side of the pillar.



They delicately reached out to grasp each other's hands, and suddenly it became real....emotions welled up...


Composure regained, Makenzie and Steve prayed for God's blessings on their new life, while expressing their love and gratitude for each other.  Then after a tightened clench of the hands, they released their grip while staring longingly at the stone pillar that stood between them.  A man-made cornerstone - yet symbolic of their love that would now become the cornerstone of a new life spent together.
