I’m breaking a cardinal rule of wedding photography by telling you that this wedding was possibly my all-time favorite. But, when I decided to work with James and Michael I was already breaking one of my own rules—never work for family or friends. You see in this case, it’s not just business, it’s personal: Michael and James belong to the family I picked for myself. (Because they’re two of my dearest friends, I’m allowed to play favorites.) I was honored and humbled to be a part of their day.
