  27. gina

    always incredibly moving …. but theres this one image of the lower half of the bride and her bouquet … she’s standing sideways and the background, and the light and the colors … gah! its a beautiful piece of art.

    I come here often to just gain inspiration… mainly from the way you take what’s already beautiful and make every frame a vision.


  28. mai

    This wedding is perfection, and you were the only photographer for the job in capturing it.

  29. Vikki

    Everything was so beautiful from the bride to the rustic Mr. and Mrs. signs. I make origami cranes so I just love how it was displayed at the reception. I will visit your blog often!
