I love being a Delaware Wedding Photographer! I get to meet and witness sweet couples like Yasmin & Josh. I shot their engagement session a few months back and they were awesome. You could just tell how in love they were. Their wedding day was no exception. They were married at Calvary Assembly of God church in Dover, DE. The reception was held at the Landings on the Dover Air Force Base.
I always start early to photograph the ladies getting ready. This time I was surprised to see one of the bridesmaids was a bridesmaid in a wedding I shot the year before. What a small world! Then I go get the detail shots like the dress, shoes, jewelry, etc. Always fun! Next I spent some time with the boys while Yasmin got dressed. Once back with the girls, Yasmin got some advice from her Grandmother and then went outside for some shots with her dad. He was very proud!
The ceremony was very different. Josh couldn’t hold the tears back once he saw Yasmin coming down the isle and Daddy wasn’t doing much better either. Once they walked up to the alter, Josh went over to the piano and surprised Yasmin with a song he wrote and then played for her. Very sweet! They threw in some cultural touches too and I thought that was very cool!
Once at the reception there was a ton of dancing. After cutting the cake, the Domincans gathered outside for a huge family photo. That was a lot of fun! Yasmin & Josh finished the night with everyone surrounding them and holding hands to create a love circle while they danced. I took them outside before leaving to get some “sexy time” photos. I think it worked! Let me know what you think by leaving a comment.
