Presenting Christian and Amanda Moore!
Normally, I would go on about how beautiful the wedding was, or how amazing it is to be a part of such an important event in someone's life. But this time, I wanted to point out something that really caught my attention... the joyful, exciting, and very emotional first look of a father and his daughter on her wedding day.
Watching Amanda's father, James, see his beautiful daughter in her stunning wedding dress for the first time was simply amazing. It was like witnessing an event that nobody else will ever see... Just him and her... but luckily they had me there in the distance photographing it so you all can see as well :)
On a more personal note, I can't sit here and say I know what its like, but I can only imagine what it's like to see your daughter marry the man of her dreams. I can honestly say that witnessing James during this big moment put it all into perspective for me. That's his baby girl... the love of his life... going off to marry the love of her life. Im sure it's one of the most difficult things that a man will ever do. She will always be his baby girl, the little girl who he held in his arms as a child, the girl that mom and dad raised together to become something great... sending her off into the arms of an amazing and respectful man.(who happens to be in the military, so big kudos from me!)
In the video below, you'll see the first look between father and daughter... and then some other awesome pics from their amazing wedding!
