Over the last several weeks I’ve been working on a new front page to the site, something that touches on what is truly important and special about a wedding day and how my style of photography works with that.

Of all the weddings I’ve covered over the years, big and small, elegant and simple, this is most like how my own wedding was over 26 years ago with my wife and all I can wish for Ed and Theresa is that 26 years down the road they are still as happy as I am.
