There’s no other relationship in the world quite like the one a father has with his daughter. And the day a father walks his daughter down the aisle is one of the most monumental occasions of their relationship. He’s always protected her with every fiber of his being and now gives her away to a man that he hopes will love and cherish her the way he always has.
My role in documenting this bond is one of my most favorite parts of being a photographer. The connection between a father and his daughter is so beautifully transparent on the day of her wedding. While most father’s I know have a rugged, protective exterior, that all melts away the day his daughter becomes a Bride. It’s the one day a father wears his heart on his sleeve and with that I’m able to capture some of the most raw emotion a father will ever show. To freeze that moment in time is a gift. I will forever look back at my wedding photographs and feel the undeniable bond that I share with my father. That gift is what I hope to give back to every father and daughter that I have the privilege of photographing.
This Father’s Day I’d like to take a look back at some of my favorite father/daughter moments:
This post wouldn’t be complete without a photo of me and my dad on my wedding day. I love you Dad! Happy Father’s Day!
Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there!
