Megan and Steven ::

Megan and Steve have been together since high school, but when those two locked eyes on their wedding day, I could have sworn they were seeing each other for the first time. It was such an honor to photograph that moment. I was eight months pregnant when I shot this wedding last November, and one of my assistants was five months pregnant at the time as well... needless to say, there were tears all around.

The day started off at Magnolia's Salon for hair and make up

Sarah, who came along with us to shot this wedding, grabbed this shot of that first meeting.

And then it was off to the graffiti wall downtown. Megan suggested this location and I'm so glad she did!

It was pretty cold that day - so cold I could barely move my frozen fingers - but Megan and Steven worked it out

You know, pretty much everyone is happy on their wedding day. I mean, who wouldn't be.... it's a day to be together with your closest family and friends as you pledge your devotion to one person forever (while you wear the best clothes ever and finally have an excuse to splurge on a dynamite pair of shoes you'll only wear once). After shooting so many weddings, I often wonder if that joy lasts. You know, after the dinner is done, the honeymoon is over, the last gift has been put away, and the marriage begins.... well, I ran into Megan the other day and when I asked her how married life was treating her, I saw this same excited smile that she just couldn't contain.
