What an amazing, fun & relaxed day we had with Michelle & Doug! My favourite part was a reading done by one of their closest friends – the lyrics to Adorn by Miguel, which is one of my favourite songs! Can’t wait to see them again next year when I photograph Doug’s brother’s wedding! Also a big thank you to Nova Markina for second shooting with me this day!
