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.

Linda and J.J. :: Married :: Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church, Potomac, Maryland

Last Saturday, J.J. and Linda were wed in a beautiful ceremony at Our Lady of Mercy in Potomac, Maryland. They both have such lovely families and it was a real treat to get to meet them all.

I love this photo of J.J. and Linda's moms walking up to the altar for the candle lighting.

Linda described this moment as full of joy. As she stood there, her father holding her arm, the doors to the church opened and everyone she loved was on the other side, looking back at her. I think it shows on her face!

I love this picture, where Linda sneaks a little peak at her new wedding ring.

Check out more of my favorites in the SLIDESHOW!

Hope you are enjoying the "Beach! Beach! Beach!", J.J. and Linda!
