The Church

In January I drove down to Corpus Christi with Elaine and our friend Kelly to photograph the wedding of Erika & Nick. Ok, to be honest – I rode down. They drove. I love road trips, but prefer to be in the passenger seat! (That way, I can knit!) Erika & Nick are such a sweet, gorgeous couple, and we had such a fantastic time at their wedding! I can’t even put into words the love I could feel when I was around them and their families. It was a wonderful thing.

Erika & Nick graduated from college in December, and then started their lives together as husband & wife in January – I think 2009 is their year! So many changes on the road ahead, and I can tell that their love will keep them strong and guide them through it all.

Getting Ready
I love this moment captured while everyone is getting ready. So many vignettes, such a buzz of activity and excitement. Getting Erika, the bridesmaids, and the mother of the bride all ready for the ceremony. Something about it draws me in every time I look at this photograph.

Sewing
Elaine helped to save the day with her sewing kit, helping to prevent a dress disaster!
