Ben and Jessica are amazing and their wedding reflected that. They’re love for one another and love for life shown throughout the day. I loved how relaxed Jessica was. She spent the day laughing and smiling, which I think every bride should do. Don’t stress out about the little things. They won’t matter tomorrow. But what will matter is that you shared an amazing day with friends and family celebrating your love. Special thanks to Dan Garcia for second shooting with me and for always having my back.

Dan & Magaly were such a fun couple on their wedding day. Their wedding party made me laugh so much, perhaps the most I’ve ever laughed at a wedding. I loved how they chose to write their own vows and seal them to be read in 25 years. Dan & Magaly, I wish you all the best and please please don’t ever stop making each other laugh.
