I’ve been wanting to post about Nick and Hayley for awhile now, but I’ve been struggling to find the best words. It was just a ton of people that love each other crying their faces off about two beautiful people getting married.

There’s nothing quite like shooting a wedding as a guest and the photographer. The ease that graces you as you’ve already made it through the awkward pleasantries and the hesitation of fearing judgements as I grab a glass of wine at the reception. Love pouring out of every single person that came. Hayley and Nick could not stop cheesin’ all dang day. As the ceremony took place, nobody seemed to be able to keep it together. Wet eyes, and sniffles roared through the crowd as they pledged their vows to love each other forever.

Being able to drop my professional photographer face, and just be that weirdo with a camera in one hand and a whiskey in the other, I feel it really allowed me to capture their day more intimately than ever before. The insight of history and friendship washed over us and everything was beautiful, and chaotic, and perfect.
