Last week, on the fourth of July, I had the pleasure and honor of co-photographing alongside my good friend Laura Grauwen, the wedding of Josh and Annie Simmons. The couple got engaged the Fourth before and in honor of that, decided to take their vows exactly a year to date. This was my first time shooting a wedding and it was an exciting and endearing day, full of laughter, love and even some tears. I felt myself becoming wrapped up in the moment, along with everyone else who witnessed the celebration. It felt as if the whole town was there, cheering these two on and their beautiful, lively family. Here are just a few, of the many memorable moments.
