The Sunflower Wedding | Fredericksburg Wedding Photographer

  • Nathan + Evelyn

You should know by now that I love shooting friend’s weddings. I really do. Is it hard to work and still have time to say hi to people? Yes… but it’s so worth it.

However, it was still fabulous because we made it work and made a ton of memories along the way. Mallory thought she was coming to be the comic relief and make Erinn laugh… but really, she ended up being our umbrella carrier and lens keeper. We literally couldn’t have done this without her!
