I photographed my first wedding in New Jersey. One year later, I was holding my camera in the countryside of Spain. Weddings are beautiful. At their core, they are at once the simplest and most complex expression of relationships. A bond between two people. Their loved ones that surround them. The legacy and weight of culture. Honor and tradition passed down from generations before. Laughter and dance. Remembrance. Bonfires by night. Promises for tomorrow. This is the stuff that makes life worth living. Worth writing about. So much that it hurts not to capture it.
