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.
