I am a few years older than my second cousin Kelsey - but being from a big huge family in a small town area, you feel like your second cousins are just like your first cousins because you've known them well your whole life. I remember Kelsey as a little girl, I remember when she got into middle school and I was in high school (I'm just a weeeeeee bit older ;) lol) and I'd see her in the hall - and I was so glad when she asked me to be her wedding photographer.
She found her soulmate, right in her home town, in a guy who maybe isn't outwardly smiley, but inwardly you can see he loves Kelsey as much as she loves him. Greg gave me a hard time, because he's a goofball and super fun, with a dry sense of humor; and I loved working with him and his guy friends, and Kelsey and her closest ladies. And best of all - I loved photographing family that I don't get to see often, and I am SO glad to get to capture through my lens. Its part of what makes me love what I get to do, to capture smiles of people I truly love and care about :)
