One of the most meaningful parts of this job to me is photographing my close friends' weddings. Friends I've had for years but don't get to live near anymore or friends I see often but not enough - and Claire is one of those friends to me.
We were roommates in college (somehow we fit two beds into a tiny room) with nine other girls in a huge house in Dinkytown. We have the best memories. Even though we live in different parts of the country now, I treasured the role I got to play on her Minnesota wedding day at beautiful Legacy Hill Farm. I'll never forget the emotion on their faces after they said their vows after their ceremony - and into their portraits - it was some of the most intense I've ever witnessed. They were some of the happiest I've ever seen, and I was the happiest for them.
Thank you both so much for letting me be there, it means the world. And a huge thank you to my talented friend Lydia Jane for helping me run around and photograph everything - you're the best!
