There is always something special about photographing a wedding of someone in your family. Samantha is my cousin and I was 100% in love with the idea of me being the one to capture her day when her mom asked if I was available. Samantha and Brad were so sweet to watch all day. I loved Brad’s eyes tearing up as Sam walked down the aisle and how he held her hand that was draped over his arm as they recessed back down the aisle. And where Brad was calm and in love all day (and everyday), Sam was happy to insert her moments of funny – the funny faces, the little whispers between her and Brad that made him smile so big. I love how happy I know they make each other just by seeing them through my lens.
