Editing the first batch of scans from my sister in law's wedding...


I knew when I took this, I got what I was looking for. There were 3 frames total. 1 smiling and one of him laughing at me as I was all up in his grill. This is my wife's uncle. He is a hay farmer in Paragonah UT. Salt of the earth this man is. But this frame, this frame tells the story of hard, hard work. Much, much more coming from this wedding very, very soon.

EDITED...

And here is another frame to prove the one above is actually from a wedding. My girls are TOO cute.

The first image makes me feel like giggling and crying at about the same time. It's that really happy, touched feeling where all of the sudden the world seems like a beautiful and wonderful place with great people in it. Way to capture that.

The picture of the twins just melts my heart. How beautiful they are. Best friends forever.
I also love your first picture as it captured the essence of that man. It tells his story so purely.
