From the Photographer:  When Wedding Paper Divas contacted me to do a styled shoot for them, they gave me an open slate and told me to come up with something cool that would speak to a modern bride.

From our first phone conversation, I knew we would be friends for life. Nishaka was with us during the most hectic and joyful time of our lives. During the planning of our wedding, we were in two different states and I was planning to sell a home, find a job and move. Throughout it all, […]
