Carol & Andrew | Married!

I met Carol at the Unitarian Church in Geneva when we were 4 years old. And 20 years later I found myself standing in a room with  my camera, photographing a bride getting her makeup done. Not a crazy place to find myself considering I'm a wedding photographer, but this felt different. I found that I felt very emotional and then I realized this was the first time I have photographed the wedding of someone I've known such a long time. Friends play different roles in our lives, some come in and out of our lives at different times and for different reasons. I have some fond memories with Carol growing up and to see her getting ready on her wedding day... thats some powerful stuff! Especially for a empathetic sap like me. It was a hot but wonderful day, full of warm embraces and happy smiles - and even a puppy in the wedding party! Carol and Andrew, thank you for having me photograph your wedding celebration! I'm so happy for you starting this exciting chapter in your lives.
