paul + brittany

I had the great pleasure of photographing the wedding of my 2nd cousin, once removed (or something like that). As you might remember from my last wedding (which was also my first wedding) I tend to get a wee bit nervous when it comes to photographing someone's ONE special day. Me + a teensy bit of pressure = bundle of nerves. Luckily, this family was so calming and encouraging in the way they put their trust in me.

Honestly, with a couple this handsome, you could really just fling your camera around haphazardly and still get lovely photos. They are a stunning pair and gracious beyond belief!

This family is oozing with creativity. Every detail of the wedding was handmade, upcycled, recreated, or invented. Just wait until you see some photos from the reception! Until then, enjoy the faces of brittany and paul...the happy couple.
