Wildflower Center Winter Wedding: Owen & Kemper

"Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” – Don McCullin

Most people give speeches with words to communicate their love, joy, and pride on a wedding day, but Michael shared photographs of his daughter.  Audible gasps echoed around the room as each new photograph came up on the screen.  When the people you photograph are the people you have loved, the force of that love in indelibly imbedded in those photographs.  It helps that Michael is a talented and renowned photographer, but in that moment, he was just a proud dad showing his love in the best way he knew how.  Having known Owen since our brothers started playing soccer together more than a decade ago, I find it only fitting that these two adventurous and well loved people got married outside on a misty day with stretches of wild land behind them and almost 20 dear friends beside them, not to mention the hundreds of family and friends there in support.
