↠ nicole and nic are the most down to earth humans who had the most beautiful intimate lake wedding last weekend & I cannot wait to share more photos!
↠ Dalvinder and Austin are married! Well… not quite yet because Austin forgot the marriage license at home but you didn’t hear that from me. I truly cannot say enough amazing things about these two. From the moment we had a phone consult to the engagement photos at @great.marsh to their wedding weekend it has been an amazing experience spending time with these two. Dalvinder and Austin are so light hearted, hilarious and easy going, not to mention snazzy af. I mean, look at them! Dalvinder had the most incredible dresses, jewelry (not the mention she was wearing real gold) and hennas while Austin looked incredibly sharp. Spending the weekend with these two and their families made me leave feeling so loved and appreciated in so many way. The families were so thoughtful and everyone there made sure I had enough to eat which is the best feeling in the world especially when you’re offered Indian food. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for these two and I am so honored to have been the one to photograph a few of your first and biggest adventures together.
