R & H Nuptials

i am so excited to post these! i was so excited when I was invited to capture some of the candid moments of the celebration and continued blessing of the love shared between Ryan and Hamilton.

it was a holy day filled with love, life and beauty. the wedding was absolutely delightful and joy filled, as dear friends and family surrounded these two with support, love and gratitude for the the love story that has been, is being and will continue to be written between ryan and hamilton.

with great joy I anticipate what God is creating in their lives as they enter into this new chapter.

lots of love to ryan and hamilton!
