I like weddings! They express the very essence of faith, hope and love*. Here come a man and a woman to say, in front of their family, friends and neighbors,
Marriage affirms life, strengthens family, blesses society, and can even keep us off the streets and out of trouble (if we give it half a chance).
So, when I get the opportunity to photograph a wedding, I hate to turn it down! Opportunities have been waning recently, due to the economy and a general lessening of respect for the institution, but I still believe in marriage, still hope for the blessing of couples every where and still love to be a part of such a happy occasion!
*The greatest of these, by the way, is love.
