Buckwalter-1

I will start by saying that the bride is the daughter of my cousin…and the bride and groom are a perfect match…and I had a terrible time deciding which photos to post in their “sneak peek”…so here they are …alllllll 60+ photos…

Some details…

Drizzly day senior session…

It was a dreary day…but no rain and fairly bright skies…until I was about a mile from the location of this senior shoot…I even checked the radar before I left my house!
