One of the best parts of being a wedding shooter is having the opportunity to witness two people come together in love during some of the most meaningful and beautiful stages of their lives together. In the last few years, I’ve had the unique privilege to watch as Layne and Zack showed their excitement at being engaged and then the depth of their love at their wedding. They called on me to do pictures to announce their pregnancy back in December and, last June, we also got together for their maternity shoot. I love Layne and Zack — not only have they been some of my favorite people to work with (and shoot — they’re so photogenic!), but they’re also really special people who exude kindness. Every opportunity that I’ve had to work with them has left me impressed at their character — a word that doesn’t get emphasized enough nowadays. But these two have it and they are so deserving of all the blessings in their lives. They’re going to make wonderful parents and I am so happy to have been able to watch as their family grows.
