wedding photos & an (unexpected) announcement

23 Jul 2014

i’ve been waiting to finish editing my photos from my sister-in-law’s wedding last saturday and show them to her before putting upon my blog here. but, it’s all done now and the happy couple has received all of their photos, so now i can share a few shots with you!

i hope that m and u are as happy with the outcome as i was photographing them. it was so much unbelievable fun – capturing their special day and all of the little moments that made up a wonderfully magical, beautiful celebration of love. i am eternally grateful and honored that they asked me to chronicle their wedding, and i will truly cherish the opportunity to sneak around, taking photos, and soaking up the joy of seeing everyone celebrate not only m & u’s love, but love in general. wow, i’m a hopeless romantic, aren’t i?

not only was the wedding beautiful, but it was super fun too. i also survived my “toastmaster”/host role, thanks to being parters-in-crime with my brother-in-law, one of my favorite all-around people in the world. we realized just before the reception that we really had no idea what to do, though we had lots of good ideas (thanks to my love for planning and preparing so much!)

anyway, more about all the ins and outs of the wedding (= my personal photos) in another post soon. for now, here are my photos of the happy couple and their wedding. enjoy!

i must say, due to the fact that i was about to jump out of my skin with excitement as i ran around snapping photos during the wedding, and due to the fact that i think my photos are pretty ok, and with the encouragement of others, i believe i am going to set up a Facebook page and a photography portfolio. so, from here on out, i’m officially saying that i am available to take photos, if you or anyone you know needs a photographer. and i don’t just mean weddings. i can do photos for your book, website, family, newspaper, whatever.

i think i just announced the beginning of photography. gaaaahh!

peace and love. xx

    What a lovely wedding! Love your photos with interesting features like the back of the wedding dress and the table set with cute party bags. A grand affair and a great time for all who attended!

      Hey! I would love to take your wedding photos in NYC – it would be amazing… do you wanna hire me?! (I’m serious!). Perhaps we can figure out a deal of some sort.
