Garter Retrieval at DC Wedding Venue with Marble Floors
Garter Retrieval at a Washington DC Wedding
I've become well versed in the area of wedding traditions across a myriad of cultures and religions. Marriage rites interest me, and I go to great lengths to understand a couple's traditions and customs before I photograph their wedding.
However, certain rites transcend custom and culture and are universal. The exchange of vows, first kiss, cutting of the cake, bouquet toss, garter retrieval, and toss are some customs that immediately come to mind when I think of the way marriage rites intersect cultures.
These events are usually energy filled and emotive and offer some of the best opportunities to make images that tell you more "about the couple" rather than just "what's happening." In this garter retrieval photo, it's hard to miss "the look" that this groom is giving his bride.
