Tell all Tuesday THE Kiss

Doug & Jo Kiss-Photography G This photo stands with my favorites to this day because it is so authentic. The "you may kiss the bride" moment. I can pose and coach people very well, but what could I have ever said during portrait time (kiss for the camera) that could top the real deal? This was used on my first wedding business card. My designer Photoshopped the officiant's head out. I said "No, no, no! That authenticates that this is the real deal, at the alter." A photojournalistic, artful shot in the moment. I didn't start out as a shooter doing wedding photography in Denver. It all began with concert photography which was where I honed my skills for anticipating and capturing moments by instinct. I went on to succeed in my Colorado portrait photography, Denver commercial photography and then one of the first couples to request me for their wedding is pictured above. When I got the proofs back, I knew I had found another genre for my talent. I loved it! What an amazing day to be a part of. And to be trusted to capture all of it, as the photographs are the lasting impression of the day. Yes!
