Favorite Documentary Wedding Photos + Portraits Of 2017

Black and white photo of bride under veil crying before Grand Central Station Washington DC wedding ceremony Every year I like to round up some of my personal favorite documentary wedding photos and portraits and put them in a nice little post. Obviously, it’s awesome for others to see and appreciate my work, but it’s also a great way for me to review my own work, see how it’s changed, grown, and the types of things that have influenced it over the previous year. This allows me to better see and understand where I want to take my work in the following year. With the closing of 2017 here are my personal favorites. None of these photos are in any particular order and they are not necessarily the “best of the best” of the year, just more of my personal favorites that stood out to me for one reason or another. For some it might be the lighting, others it might be the moment or I just love the story behind the photo. And yet others, it’s simply knowing how hard I had to bust my ass just to make that one single photo. Regardless of the reason, like every photo I take, they are all very important to me in one way or another. I also love being able to relive the weddings and stories from all over. From Atlanta, Washington DC, and Hawaii, to San Francisco, New York City, and many others, 2017 was a total blast! A huge thank you to every couple who has trusted me and allowed me to be a part of their friends, family, and their special day. So without further ado, here are my personal favorite documentary wedding photos and portraits of 2017.
