Oh boy am I ever behind on blogging these amazing, wonderful weddings i've been shooting over the past few weeks! I'm just going to start at the beginning and work my way forward.

Nick and Jennel were married at the end of June. You might remember them as "couple number 2" from my big free wedding photography contest I ran last year, if you don't remember, you can read all about it **HERE**. To read Nick & Jennel's story, **CLICK HERE**.

Anyway, I eventually ended up shooting all three of the finalist weddings for free this year, and Nick and Jennel's wedding was second! This was the kind of wedding that is an absolute dream to be a part of--it was emotional, genuine, beautiful, and fun! Nick and Jennel are such a fantastic couple. Their wedding was a celebration of a huge group of friends and familly, all of whom knew and loved each other for many many years.
