When Philip e-mail me about photographing his marriage to Chris, I knew from those first few exchanges that it was a story I wanted to tell.  We bonded over emails over our mutual love of little orange cats. I remember when he sent me their proposal story on how Chris brought Philip breakfast in bed, and even their sweet orange kitty Miles hopped up to be part of the special moment.  Something that I really love when going into photographing a wedding is knowing my couple and their story. These two men know how to love one another, laugh together, and have an overwhelmingly wonderful set of family and friends who came to support them on this beautiful April day at the Mountain Terrace.

Philip and Chris, you are so wonderful I cannot really put it into words.
