Wednesday was a leap day, but for two of my best friends it’s something a little more special. For Larry and Erin, Feb. 29, 2012 was their wedding day. As I joked, Larry planned the whole thing out so he only has to buy flowers for Erin once every four years. I wanted to send out another heartfelt congratulations to my beautiful friends with a frame of them I shot a couple years back at the German Christkindlmarkt in Chicago. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Buchanan!

Religious ceremonies always seem to lead to good pictures because they open people up, exposing some very telling moments about the characters of the worshippers. Below are a few pictures presented in black and white, but I also put together a gallery in full living color.[Read more…] about All Schools Mass
