    How amazing!!! Emily, you are beyond beautiful- I never thought a camera would be able to capture it completely- but what an awesome job he did! Way to go!

    And Andy, what a handsome groom you are! Now that the wedding is done, I have to ask… when do we get some beautiful babies out of this?

    Thank you William for helping to capture just how beautiful this couple is. I couldn’t ask for better friends and memories from Emily and Andy, and the rest of our IV Starbucks crew. Thanks to Chris, too, for giving us all the opportunity to meet and grow together, and for giving Ems & Andy such an amazing photographer! ~OliviaReplyCancel
