trae and daniel wedding

Weddings are important.  I feel that way more strongly and more wholeheartedly with every wedding I shoot (and now plan ;)  ).  I worried when I started photographing weddings that it would be the opposite that I’d somehow become jaded to the process.  Instead I find little pockets of cynicism I didn’t know I had being completely ironed away by the constant and welcome evidence that weddings are important, lovely, things, meaning more then maybe we even know.

Of course the point of a wedding is not the wedding, though we put our whole hearts into the ceremony and celebration (rightly so, the care (and stress) we feel for making our wedding bright and beautiful and beloved is a direct result of how important the whole point is.). The point of the wedding is that declaration,  the “i do”and our singing with whole hearts a commitment to the one we love for the rest of our lives.  No one could think this any more strongly felt then it was/is with Trae and Daniel.  So I’ll introduce their day at the end, which is actually the beginning and we’ll head back to the start of their happily ever after.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
