Rafaela & Rob

Matt and I got to do something VERY special last night: Go to a wedding where we were GUESTS instead of working! :) This includes a lot more sitting, socializing, and drinking. It's also really exciting to eat when everyone else eats.

When I lived on Singer Island through my teenage years I had a neighbor that was like a sister to me. Raff and I went to different schools but, after school we were pretty inseparable. So, to see someone who means that much to me get married was pretty over-whelming; I CRIED! lol.

I brought my camera along for fun without too many extras, just what would fit in my purse. But, when their wedding photographer ran out of memory on her card I thought it might not hurt to snap a few extra shots. I like the photos because they're a bit different from what I usually shoot. They're from a guest's perspective rather then a visual story of a full wedding. No fancy flash work, not a lot of variety in ceremony shots or any getting ready photos, but I think that's kind of interesting. And more then anything, I'm happy to have captured some of the moments that made Raff's wedding day so special. I couldn't be happier for her. :)

Yea, this bride likes me... ;)
