The Cooper Wedding: McKenzie & Nate

On August 13, 2016, I shot this lovely couple's wedding. Coincidentally, it was my first ever wedding that I had ever shot. Although McKenzie and I were already friends and I worked with her prior, shooting her wedding day made me nervous. However, when the day came, I was more than prepared. Meeting her family for the first time put my mind at ease. Everyone was so warm and welcoming. It was as if I was a part of the family. Needless to say, the intimate affair was incredibly special for all those in attendance. A small group of 75 celebrated the bride & groom at 128 South in Wilmington, North Carolina. Cheers to you, Nate & McKenzie! I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. Thank you for choosing me to share this moment with you.
