elizabeth & daniel | married!

as i sat down to write this, i found it was much more difficult than i expected to put my feelings about january 10, 2015 into words.  beth came into my life the moment i arrived in d.c. two years ago, and i truly can’t imagine what my time here would have been like without her.  she is one of those once-in-a-lifetime (but lifelong) friends that has changed me for the better, irrevocably.

sitting a few inches away from her at the office, every day, i had the supreme privilege of watching her love story from the very start.  she and dan, her husband (!!), have the sweetest love, and the happiness i feel about the two of them having found each other goes deep down into my bones.

i would have been over the moon to simply watch them tie the knot (in puerto vallarta, mexico, no less!), but beth gave me the huge honor and opportunity to photograph their wedding, my very first.  the experience falls into the top five of my entire life, and it is a day i will never forget.

beth’s nieces and nephews were the cutest.  drew expressing himself during the rehearsal was one of my favorite moments of the whole weekend.
