Image of the Week: Image 1


Just minutes before the wedding, the bride is usually running around making sure all the last minute details are ready. This bride was as organized as ever. Everything was in its place and she was ready long before call-time. So as we sat upstairs in the bridal room, she and her bridesmaids climbed up on the couch to look down on the front lawn at the guests as they arrived. Meanwhile her father entered the room and quietly snuck around to see what they were looking at.

It was a great candid moment, as the bride turned her head around to see her father. Not to mention, he was standing at the perfect angle to catch his reflection in the mirror. I must confess, it was a little bit of luck, but that's the nature of candid images. Celebrity wedding photographer Joe Buissink admits that he's often lucky, but he says, "I work extremely hard to place myself in the way of luck and good fortune." And that's how great moments are captured forever.

This is such a fantabulous idea! And your first image is so beautiful ~ I love the way the shadows on the ceiling and the profile of the father lead our eye to the bride.

That's an amazing photo! I love the lighting and everything. It was nice having you and your wife come to Southern and talk to us in class this past semester. you inspired me to do wedding photography, among other subjects. God bless you and your family in your career and travels.

Okay...you are too stinkin' cool! That is amazing. I said to my husband, "He can totally see a story. He is Joe Buissink in his infancy." My husband just laughed. But really...that image is not infancy! It's incredible! When will I ever get to hang out with you two?
