My husband and I have three go to walks that we choose from with our three canine family members.

Well, being a photographer, I had to at least post ONE photo from a wedding after all! The dances, bride and groom, father and daughter, mother and son, are some of the most beautiful demonstrations of love I have ever witnessed. Enjoy!
