Christa is a good friend of mine; you may recognise her from some portraits I took of her when I started photography. Well, I had the honour of being in her wedding party! That makes it hard as a photographer, because you want to be sure that she has the most amazing photos of her wedding, but you also want to be IN the wedding and help her with all of the other details.
