photographing hundreds of weddings presents

a fascinating backdrop for reflecting on marriage.

 when, young and single, i photographed my first weddings, marriage struck me as magical and foreign.

in the years that followed, my friends started talking about "the one," and i scrutinized the weddings i photographed

so i could understand what "the one" should look like. 

i married my own love full of hope and dreams.

now, ten years in, i know the weight that hope must be strong enough to carry. 

that the tests will be relentless, and that stories unfold unpredictably.

 when i watch couples step over the threshold now, 

i feel the giddiness alongside the clear-eyed awe, knowing the journey

will be rich, deep, and raw beyond imagination.
