New Beginnings {248/365}

I had the privilege of photographing two weddings this past weekend.  The two could not have been more different.  One was a young couple, just starting out, thinking about starting a family and celebrating with a giant, all get-out bash.  The other was an older couple, starting out again with new hopes for their future, and a much simpler, more intimate celebration. I feel blessed to have been part of both.

We never know the path life with bring us down. The people we meet and those we take with us in the journey are all important in the details of our lives.  Although I exhausted myself over the weekend (and grew a few more calluses on my feel and hands) I couldn't help but realize the contrast and similarities of the events I was helping to preserve. Both held their own expectations but each shared their own hopes.

Thank you for letting me be a part of it.
