tonya bridals with the cows

When Tonya told me how much she loved cows I thought well why in the world should we not take pictures with them for her bridals? So, we did just that! We headed out to the Dairy Barn in Fort Mill, SC where she would be getting married just a couple weeks later! These are some of my favorite bridals!

We love everything about Indian weddings. The food, the colors, the culture. Everything is visually stimulating so photographing it makes our minds want to explode!

Ruchi and Kevin got married several weeks ago. It was pretty amazing. They are such a fun couple! Both doctors, super good looking and ridiculously sweet. Seriously, this is our job. Sometimes I feel like I should pinch myself…..

There were some pretty amazing vendors involved too.
