What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding was earlier this year, I had stared taking some bridal preparation pictures however I could see that the bride was very nervous and at times upset. It seemed her family was stressing her out further and so I politely asked for the family to leave the room for a few moments where I calmed the bride down by talking to her and showing her some of the pictures on the camera.
