This Five Hours session started with getting ready and finalizing with reception party. Some details about this wedding are:
We are a fun, easy-going couple and do not want any of our photos too staged or "cheesy" looking. We want fun, candid photos of us and our wedding party, as well! and as a photographer I just said that is my favorite kind of work.
