Before I am a photographer, I am a daughter, a sister, an auntie, a friend. Maybe that's why I cry during every father daughter dance. I laugh at every toast. I well up when an Officiant pronounces a couple husband and wife. I buzz with joy chasing children around the playground. I feel awe when a newborn's tiny hand clutches my pinky finger. I draw from the emotions I have experienced through my own life's most precious moments to know when and how to capture those of others, and I usually can't help feeling overwhelmed myself! The emotional rush I feel when I'm behind the camera is what makes me love what I do. The joy I bring others through photography is what makes me do what I love.

Tina & Mo :: Married!

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of second shooting for Kate Triano at Tina & Mo's wedding. Please hop on over to Kate's blog and check out her amazing pictures from Saturday as well!

I was also thrilled because I got to work with one of my favorite coordinators, Annie Brinker again. Annie was also the coordinator at Jodie & Steve's wedding. She did an amazing job once again!

One thing I love about 2nd shooting is that I get a chance to spend time with the guys while they are getting ready; I'm usually with the bride, with my 2nd shooter off photographing the groom and his buddies.

Mo and his groomsmen were super fun!
During some downtime between pictures and the ceremony, we hung out at the hotel lobby bar. I love this picture of Tina - isn't she gorgeous!?

I think this might be my favorite image from the day.

I love the paparazzi during the cake cutting! Hilarious!

Thank you so much, Kate for inviting me along! Congrats Tina & Mo! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!
