I first met Nicole and Chris at Sarah and Ryan’s wedding a couple of years ago. I’m not going to lie, I secretly thought they were a really cool couple and hoped they would get married and hire me. Well the universe heard me and here we are! I love that they are as sarcastic as me, love beer as much as I do (probably even more), and have a sarcastic wit which can keep the banter going forever. It was an absolute blast hanging out with them and their friends for the day and I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I enjoyed making them!
