Kate and Erik are special people. When you see the way Erik looks at Kate and the ease with which they laugh together its just inspiring. It was such a pleasure and honor to serve as the wedding photographer for their big day. But the moment that stands out most to me was during the father/daughter dance. Mr. Burditt steps proudly out onto the dance floor to have this special dance with his little girl. The song was Cinderella by Steven Curtis Chapman. You can tell this isn't the first time he heard this song. He sang, no he serenaded Kate with nearly every word of that wonderful song while they danced. I was choked up and it struck me anew just how important it was that I capture this moment appropriately for Kate to always remember just how much her dad loves and admires his precious girl.
Below are my favorite photos and a short video from that heart warming first dance.
