the maynors

My friend Melanie asked me to take photos of their vow renewals right at the turn of the year and here are a handful of my favorites. It was such a fun event to observe from behind the lens of my camera, as well as emotional. They had a great balance of reverence and light-heartedness. I found it to be a very refreshing thing to do, renew vows. I'm already planning how Josh and I can do it for an upcoming anniversary.

I realize I am commenting on my own life, however, these are AWESOME! I love the sparkler one! All of them. You made that cake look way better. I can't wait to look at them all. Thanks so much.

The photos capture precious moments for those of us who were unable to be eyewitnesses. Thank you! Melanie's Aunt Barbara

The pics are really great! We were so sad to not be able to be there, and it is fun to see what it was like through the lens of your camera! You do great work. I esp. love the one of grayson and the sparkler. He's serious about that...
