I do not get to photograph as often as I would like, so when the opportunity comes around I like to grab it as quickly as I can. In January of 2015, one of my closest cousins married her best friend. I was a bridesmaid in the wedding, and used this opportunity to hone my photography skills, as well as capture memorable moments of my cousin’s special day. Wanting to do more with the photos, I decided to compile a book to surprise the newlyweds with. Naming it The Wedding Book, this project was not only special to me because it let me practice my photography on an event I had not done before, but because I was able to make precious, real, and emotional moments of time stand still for two very special people.
