I Heart Faces: Anticipation

I’m entering a photo into the I Heart Faces photo competition this week.  This will be my first time participating and I’m excited!  This weeks theme is photojournalism, with the idea that one photo (or a small collection or collage of photos) should tell a story.  I love love LOVE telling stories with photos, that’s my main goal in every wedding or portrait session.

This is one of my most favorite photos recently.  It tells a simultaneous story of anticipation and joy – the bride is eager to get to her wedding ceremony and walk down the aisle, and her father is beaming in delight over what is about to occur.  I love it – the combination of emotions, the stillness, and the joy contained in such different facial expressions.  It was a small little moment that really tells the story of the day for both people.



Hey there, and welcome to the JWP blog!  We are a photography team based in Iowa and we’re glad you’re here!  We hope you’ll enjoy viewing our most recent weddings, tips brides, and business and educational resources for photographers.
