Riley and Zach got married on a BEAUTIFUL Saturday in Charlevoix, MI. This was another wedding that was very near and dear to my heart. The week prior and this week I got to photograph people that I have know for longer than a decade and wow, such an honor.
Riley is one of the most caring people I have ever met. The entire day she was always making sure those who deserved credit, had it, and those involved with the wedding had anything and everything they needed. She even got vendors gifts as thank you’s [even my second photographer], and just made everything so stinkin’ personal. From their wedding day, to family, to vendors, Riley and Zach made everyone aware who was involved, how important they were, and how much they appreciated them.
The day was chilly but the sun was out, the clouds made my photographs more interesting, and honestly the flow of everything was perfect. I got to play around with sparklers and slow shutter speeds, and just document my heart out of the wonderful people around me.
Thank you, to both of you, to your families, you made me feel like part of the fam.
