These are treasures for the kids. A very natural and unpretentious wedding; they seem very comfortable with each other, mature for their age, and easy in the thought of their life ahead. Very nicely done. Matt


Thanks Matt. That photo was taken when the question was asked if anyone opposes the wedding. :D :D

Thanks Chuck.
I had a blast. The wedding was almost completely absent of stress! It was full of smiles, laughter, and a few tears. The bride messed up her words and the groom forgot the rings in one of the rooms. This young couple was able to laugh at themselves thru it all. I watched these kids grow up to be pretty level-headed adults.

I haven't been shooting much of anything lately, have had few human subjects, and it has been a good while since I picked up a camera for a wedding. This was my first attempt at an outdoor wedding. When processing these shots, all I saw was the mistakes that I made... poor framing, exposures that were off, camera shake, motion blur, and missed shots. The couple, their families, friends, and guests had nothing but praise over them. So, I come out of it feeling that I did ok, and had fun.
