There are many reasons weddings bring us such joy. I contend, one of the best reasons for this joy is due to the roles children play on wedding day!
Children personalize some of the fundamental truths of the human experience: proliferation of the family and its culture. In that essence, we are reminded of the innocence we all once had before adulthood further corrupted our nature. Children embody so many things: our hopes, our dreams, our love, the circle of life.
Whether acting in an official capacity of the flower girls, ring bearers, junior bridesmaids or groomsmen, etc., or attending the wedding as family and friends, photographs of children make for some of the most inspiring and memorable moments of any wedding. Additionally, they are so much fun for photographers to capture in time!
