When I moved away from home I never really believed I’d never come back, or at least eventually live close enough to visit often. But, 15 years later 1500 miles still lay between me and my hometown and that means I miss so, so many important things. Being a wedding photographer compounds the problem. My life plans out a year in advance. Between the miles and the weddings, the sad fact is I miss most of my own personal “big days”. You cannot imagine what a loss that is to someone who lives for holidays and special moments, but most often finds herself documenting them for other people. So, when one of my best friends in the whole world called to tell me her daughter was getting married and I was not only free to shoot it but it meant I could be home for my mom’s birthday my heart literally did flips! I almost didn’t care that it meant boarding a plane, which completely terrifies me :)

Enjoy this little sneak peek of Faith, who was my own flower girl once upon a time, and Michael’s sweet backyard wedding. And then, if you have family close by, make plans to spend a little time with them just because you can…
