Oh those kids!

As families—and weddings—have become less rigidly traditional over the years, more and more couples are choosing to give children important roles on their special day. For photographers who really know how to observe and connect with the little ones, this creates a treasure trove of potential for sweet and silly images. Dressed to the nines and reacting in unrestrained ways to the excitement of the day, pictures of kids add a whole new perspective to the wedding day documentation. If kids will be be an important part of your wedding, this gallery is sure to make you smile!
