    Very nice pictures, done with love. I especially like how you catch the scene. Shots looks very naturally, I like it very much.

    The couples in your niche market are lucky that someone as talented as you has a passion to tell their stories. You are now on my official list of photographers I admire … and it’s not easy to get on that list. Just ask Ben Crisman.
