Janice and Esteban


These two: sweethearts. Janice contacted me online about their wedding. It would be small, it would be just family and it would be very sweet. A Chapel Dulcinea wedding? Yes, please. Two Marines getting married? Yes! Their dress uniforms are snazzy.

Details, check.

But it wasn’t just about the details—the things—it was about these two really sweet people who met and fell in love and then married and blessed me by letting me photograph it.

Almost 4 months later, I still tear up looking at these pictures. That is what a great photographer is supposed to be able to do. Capture those moments that become memories. I love it!!! :) And thank you for giving me a sense of home again.
