Mary Shaw and Daniel got married on January 14, 2017 in Windsor. The next day, I took photos of the their first day as husband and wife. How amazing is that? During the photo shoot, Daniel told me the story of the sweetest and most thoughtful proposal that took place on a boat near Ocracoke Island. While he was telling the story, I watched him be consumed with pride and happiness while his new bride smiled by his side. Thank you both for letting me document a special part of your lives. I wish you both nothing but a long, long, long life of health and happiness.
Here's a collection of favorites from that blessed and beautiful January day.
OKAY. Here's the lowdown: My life right now is pretty much a series of weddings, whether it be attending them, photographing them or helping plan them. It may be because I'm in my mid-twenties and that's when everyone typically gets hitched or it may be I've been blessed to be around a lot of romance or it may be just a coincidence...but I don't really believe in coincidences. I believe in God. God has a plan. God had a plan for me three years ago to start my own photography business. I love wedding-portrait-lifestyle photography because of the face-to-face interaction I experience and the stories that come along with it. However, once in a while, it's nice to design pretty things. My inner geek giggles whenever a new beautiful font is discovered or when a design actually looks good on a timeless white card stock paper. People are having a lot of parties these days in the name of love... and bringing people together is one of my favorite by-products of love. Here's to an amazing year full of fiestas. Happy Valentine's Day to all my lovers out there.
