ireland 2011 | jim & kerry | part 1

i had the amazing opportunity to shoot a best friend's wedding in IRELAND a few weeks back! the scenery was breathtaking. a photographer's dream. i couldn't have asked for a better trip (only way it would have been better was if my wife and little buddy could have made the trip). As i said the scenery was amazing but the people were even more amazing. 1st off jim and kerry couldn't have been better hosts to me and all of their guests. planning an ireland wedding from the usa can't be the easiest thing in the world but the week couldn't have went any smoother. our plane arrived around 5am and jim and kerry were both there to greet us! 2nd jim and kerry come from awesome families and they couldn't have been nicer. kerry's family in ireland was the friendliest most welcoming group of people i've ever met. they made me feel like part of the family. these people are the definition of family.

jim and and kerry it was an honor to shoot your wedding! thanks so much for being great friends! congratulations once again and i hope im able to remind you of what a perfect wedding week it was with my images. enjoy part 1 of my ireland post.
