Wedding Trends

Planning a wedding?

As a wedding or portrait photographer I am always looking for inspiration through my peers, locations, and articles. I found this one this morning on trends. This is so applicable to a wedding coordinator, bride, photographers, actually anyone in the business. It can also be for other specialties such as senior photography.

North Meets South

This past weekend we had a very intimate wedding. Nick is from Canada and Tara from the U.S.  Faith is what binds these two people.  Their love in God and their love of each other will keep these two together forever. Both being very proud of their countries they decided to make it the theme of their wedding. They did an incredible job and now their journey together begins. I thank them for allowing me to tell their story.

Nick and Tara, their love God, for their respective countries, and for each other.
