I genuinely feel honored to witness, connect with and photograph a wedding.  Knowing fully that this is cliche,, I am going to say it.. ..."it is a gift." It is a chance to be in the moment, fully present, to open my eyes, to see new things and to feel. It is good for my soul. Sometimes, that gift...
