Looking back at our wedding, Ryan and I can both confidently say that deciding to have a destination wedding was one of the best decisions that we have ever made. Don't get me wrong, it had its moments (planning a wedding across the country is a challenge to say the least), but the six days we spent in California celebrating our marriage were by far the very best of our lives. So why did we decide to have a destination wedding? A few reasons.
This past weekend I had the honor of photographing my first newborn session, an experience that I will cherish forever. I know how important those first new days at home with a newborn are to a family, so it was a true honor for me to be able to capture those special moments that I know their family will hold dear for the rest of their lives.
