This is a very bitter sweet blog post for me to write. It is sweet cause I loved everything about this wedding.  It is bitter because it is the last wedding I will photograph with the Shaw family. Amy was the last of three daughters that I have had the privilege to document on their wedding day. I am pretty sure it was close to 8 or 9 years ago when I photographed the first one. I have always felt like a part of the family so it was quite a special day for me as well. The bonus was meeting Jon and his family and how well him and Amy mesh as a couple. Both of them come from such loving families and it showed throughout the night. Never was there a dull moment. One moment everyone is crying and the next they are going crazy on the dance floor.   I can speak for hours on what this wedding and what this family means to me but I would rather let the photos do the talking. Thank you Amy and Jon for letting me be there to document such and epic event and to the Shaw family for always making me feel like I was one of you.
