All weddings are an honor for me to shoot but this wedding in particular was as close to shooting my own daughter's wedding as you can get. Haven is my oldest daughter Chelsea's best friend. They went to school together from preschool at Tallahassee Day School and graduated from high school together from SAIL. We lived in the same neighborhood as their family and she spent as much time at our house as Chelsea spent at theirs.
My biggest worry about this wedding aside from it being a night wedding in the middle of the woods was, could i keep it together enough to even operate my camera. I did shed some tears but most of the pictures were still in focus! :)
Raphael is an amazing man! He is loving and kind, thoughtful and intelligent and handsome. He is the Yin to Haven's Yang. You can see the adoration in both of their eyes and I am so happy that Haven has found her soul mate!
