I'm about to hit PUBLISH.
I'm about to post a social media preview to direct traffic.
And I'm about to publicly share this little gem of a blog post with the world.
This is the moment I love best in editing process.
This collective feeling right now of anticipation over these images.
Even if you were there.
Especially if you were there.
Imagining Katie's reaction as she scrolls, seeing how sweetly her husband was gazing at her the entire day.
Picturing how excited her mom will be when she can finally hit refresh to see her little girl dancing with her daddy on the dance floor.
Thinking there may be something like a, "Hey, I don't look as nervous as I felt!" from Aaron.
And a, "HEY, THERE'S ME!" from every guest pictured below.
It's this rich moment that gives me all the feels.
Knowing how much excitement exists for this couple, for these images, and the feeling all over again that this is special. important. work.
Congrats, K + A.
