Once upon a time we set a rule for ourselves that we would not photograph close friends or family. I guess it might sound a little silly for those of you who aren’t photographers, but trust me, there are a thousand reasons for this well-intentioned decision. I will spare you the laundry list and just say that my top reason was the unreal PRESSURE you put on yourself as a professional to do an amazing job.
Well, it looks like our “no family” rule has officially flown out the window. It started with Thomas’s brother’s wedding followed by my best friend’s wedding…and now my one and only baby sister, Erin, is getting married. At the end of the day, we figure that since we’ve been blessed with a smidgen of creative talent and while we’re on this spinning rock, why not work with the people we love?! It is an absolute honor to be able to photograph the friends and family that are so close to our hearts. We can never thank all of them enough for their love, support, and laughter. ❤
