A Wedding Timeline

There are basically two philosophies behind shooting weddings. Photojournalists tend to say they don’t like creating a timeline for pictures, that they are only there to capture the day as it is.

New family members have been added, some are no longer with us. Everyone looks so young to me, and that is what dates the image for me. The family images that will always hang in my home are sacred.
