Our daughter’s wedding day turned out beautiful and fantastic so don't judge me too harshly by my next sentence. I strongly encourage all other photographers that are also parents to NOT try and do everything themselves. I was so busy planning, decorating, creating floral arrangements and being a photographer that I truly just wish I had more time to actually enjoy the day a little more and spend it with my daughter, family, and friends. A little somewhat last minute, I decided to hire a second shooter and I'm so glad I did! I owe a huge thank you to Sergio Nathanael Photography who captured some beautiful moments that we will cherish forever. I also would like to thank SBW Boutique for customizing Kennedy's dress and creating something as unique and gorgeous as she is. Last but definitely not least, thank you to the bridal party for all your help and to my sister in law Megan Folder for helping me plan, create, decorate and stay somewhat sane during the whole process.
