i made a rule for myself not to shoot friends and family weddings. it just got too dangerous if something went wrong, id hate to ruin that relationship over one day. i kept that rule for myself for a few years and soon realized how much i missed them. i have the best time photographing the people close to me, and as the photographer, i get to spend the entire day with them. i've made a new rule... friends and family are always welcome!
this is my cousin, Jess, and her husband Ryan. they are beautiful/ wonderful people and were incredibly kind to me as i shot their wedding. it was a real honor to photograph them during this day of so much joy and excitement.
