civil union: ali & laura are married!

I’m kicking off the launch of this new blog with some fantastically fun sessions and weddings…and Shoot-Scoop’s Civil Union / Same Sex Wedding Debut!

When I met with Ali and Laura quite some time ago at The Parrot Mill Inn at Chatham, and instantly knew that I wanted to work with these two amazing people, to celebrate their amazing connection.   Not only was I excited to photograph my first civil union reception/wedding,  but to bear witness the love between these two people was so awesome.

My Assistant Michelle and I traveled to a  location in Milford, PA to photograph their wedding reception.

How many of you out there have babies that will sleep through loud music?  I’m so envious!
