6 Months Married; A Dance Through Our DIY Wedding

This weekend marks 6 months of marriage for my husband and I, and this month we celebrate 8 years together. I wanted to share a selection of captured moments from our union and the memories to go alongside.  My husband and I wanted to do things as simply and as true to us as possible.

These are displayed just as they were seen through my lens. From my eyes to yours…. The great reveal of Grandfather Sun…. The…

With Cynthia’s permission, the draft purpose we developed is posted below. I’ve included both a text…
