Fabulous shot—we had a pretty large group and this captures everyone well.

    Gave me shivers when I got to you and Grandpa. Such a special memory you will always have and what an impact your wedding had on him seeing his “Lisa baby” getting married.

    I’m not normally a big fan of those color contrast shots, but I just love the one you posted. And in general, all of your photos just look so regal.
