With so much deserved attention going to the bride and groom, it might be easy to overlook other key players in the big day. I always hope to capture the undercurrent of emotion between the bride and her father. After all, this is "Daddy," who in many cases was the first to spin her around on the dance floor.
I was so happy to be a part of Danielle and Jeremy's big day at Lakewatch Inn in Ithaca a few weeks back. A first impression of Danielle's father, Jim, might lend a picture of a quiet, stoic man. After leading her down the aisle, posing for a few portraits and then getting his father-daughter dance, the tears came. Anyone who has ever been a "Daddy's Little Girl" would have found it hard to keep a dry eye watching Danielle and her daddy dance.
