This wedding was touch and go for a bit – the Railroad Fire was bearing down on Paradise Springs for the better part of a month, but thanks to the amazing work by the firefighters, the venue was safe and Eunice and Chris had one hell of a wedding. Every wedding has moments, expressive people, beautiful surroundings, but I’ve rarely met a group of people so in tune to each other. It was a real treat to spend the day with everyone here – there were so many hugs, I truly felt I was among “my people” all day. Not even a 2 or so hour delay with the makeup could ruin the experience, and if you’re a glass-half-full kind of person, that delay delivered some of the most amazing light I’ve ever been blessed with for the couple’s portrait session. Take a few minutes, enjoy my favorites, and let me extend a heartfelt thanks to my friend Cindy Stafford who stepped in last minute to help me with this one!
