Elizabeth & Sam :: Married :: Wedgewood Wedding Photography :: Brentwood Wedding Photography

I have said it many times but I will say it again, I have awesome clients! Elizabeth and Sam are great examples of this and their wedding was one of those that made me sit back and reflect on why I love photographing weddings so much. When a bride and groom are not only great people but have a great relationship it shows in their pictures. Even though Sam was hesitant for photos he knew they were important for his bride and that made it important for him. Its that kind of commitment to the wedding and to the relationship that makes weddings like Elizabeth and Sam’s one that I will always remember.
