Four couples rave over the shot that stole their hearts.

With hundreds—or sometimes a few thousand—images to choose from, it can be hard to pick a favorite photo from your wedding. For the couples on these pages, one image stood out among the rest. Here's how they describe the photo that always brings a smile to their faces.

“Our favorite picture was taken right after the ceremony. We were just announced as husband and wife, heading back down the aisle as Mr. and Mrs., and our faces say it all! Dan Buckley did an amazing job of capturing our emotions.”

“The one that stands out for me is the silhouette in the doorway of the church. At first glance it appears black and white, but we are standing between a dark foreground and bright background. It came out romantic and timeless. For me, it captured the emotion of the day. What more could you want in a photo?”

“At midnight we had a balloon drop (since it was a New Year's Eve wedding), and our photographer captured our midnight kiss among the balloons.”

“There is one … with my dog, Sadie. It took several takes to finally get the perfect photo, but I am so glad we got it!”
