Photographing your best friend’s wedding is basically an invitation to feel all the feelings.
Michelle was one of my college roommates and is one of my closest friends. She met Stephen in a biology class at OSU when we lived together, and she was enamored with him from the very beginning. They’ve come a long long way since then, done long distance while she went to grad school on the other side of the country, raised their sweet dog Koda together (he was the cutest puppy EVER when we were in college!!) and have learned how to be SUCH good partners to one another. Seeing the way they have grown together and supported each other through the good times and the bad has been SO inspiring to me. And getting to be both a bridesmaid AND their photographer at their wedding was such an incredible honor.
I have to give a shoutout to my good friend Daron Jackson for second shooting this day with me. She took a bunch of these shots and was totally badass while I laughed, cried, and got WAY too wine drunk with my best friends at the end of the night. It was a day to remember.
