Nathanael & Rachel

These two are blessed with some amazing family and friends! Nate and Rachel's natural warmth and affection for each other was such a gift to all of us who were witnesses.

How often do we photographers get to stay overnight at a rustic lakeside camp facility like Camp Mivoden and get to experience first-hand family-rich hospitality! That is precisely what I received...and with my daughter by my side, none the less! 

See, my daughter Emilia has this most amazing third grade teacher, Martha, who just so happens to be the mother of the bride. Definitely a wonderful father-daughter weekend as well as a great time shooting!

Many thanks to the McKibbens and the Hills! 

There were a number of notable details about this wedding but one of the most meaningful was in regards to Rachel's dress. It was her mother's wedding dress made by her grandmother. Good family friend and talented seamstress, Tanya Bennett,  reconstructed the gown without even one cut to the bottom half of the dress. Amazing. 

One of the truly cool things about being a wedding photographer for amazing couples is that I just gained two new friends! How neat is that!
