As a child, my father's side of the family was very close. I knew all of my cousins, aunts, and uncles very well. However, as with most families, time caused us to drift apart. Most of my family moved away and started living their own lives.
Now, there is nothing wrong with that at all. I feel like relationships with people should always be treated as temporary. Because most of them are, and that makes them even more special. This is why I was so excited to shoot my cousin Tatiana's wedding. We haven't reconnected (other than on social media) in over ten years. While I had very little time to catch up with her in between shooting the wedding photos, it was very refreshing to see how happy and excited she was to get married!
Enjoy the photos!
