not sure if it’s because two out of these three lovely ladies are expecting babies in a few more months, but this was probably the most relaxed getting ready process i’ve been in.  we had lots of laughs as well though too!

    Absolutely stunning photographs! The bride is beautiful and handsome groom. My favorite is the one of Shannon in black and white.
