Larisa + Sean: Personal & Fabulous Wedding

Diane and I met Larisa years ago when our two boys were playing baseball together in middle school.  And through the years we realized we had mucho simpatico in the loves and trials of raising kids and we just ADORE Larisa.

So we were greatly honored when she asked if we could shoot her wedding.  It was such a treasure to us to see her so happy and treated so well by her future husband.  And I have to say that this wedding was FABULOUS and emotional.
So often I saw love, caring, and genuine happiness going out to Larisa and her groom from the family and friends that gathered to witness her special day.  Congratulations, again, Larisa and Sean!
