making your day unforgettable

There is something about the way the groom looks at his bride for the first time with so much love in his eyes an it gets caught in a portrait, in a way that embraces you in its warmth and holds you in that moment for years. This is a moment that will linger in your mind and remain long after the moment has faded. Portraits are the tangible remnants of the best moments in your life. They will be the legacy handed down to your children, full of laughter and forever moments that will be relived repeatedly.
