na harusi yake

and her wedding day....

I love learning about photography and although I am far from an expert I am enjoying honing my skills in an amazing corner of His creation. The people, the colors, and culture here are a privilege to capture. I am lovin' being invited to take pictures at friend's wedding because in addition to blessing them with photos of their day I get to snap some amazing cultures shots. Here are my favorites of the wedding last week.....
