It is always an extra special dose of joy when I have the chance to photograph friends. I met Niki and Paul last year when we started attending The Point for church and Niki blew my mind with her incredible vocals. I got to know her and her family through the worship team from then on and not only are they selfless and faithful people, they are loving examples of strong marriage and parenting. They decided to renew their vows for their 20th anniversary and even though I was only a few weeks away from due date with little Kira, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to capture their special day.
Full of family, friends, commitment, nostalgia, and good ol’ southern food set against the bank of the James River on a gorgeous autumn day, this was a beautiful day all around. I’m so grateful to have been a part of these memories in the making and to have witnessed the hope of long-lasting love between two people I so lovingly admire.
Enjoy these highlights of Niki & Paul’s ceremony and reception!
