You know what I’m afraid of? Mango sap, snakes, and poison ivy. You know what I’m NOT afraid of? PDA.

"The quality of the finished product 
SURPASSED MY EXPECTATIONS.
Keri was awesome the day of the wedding, she took the initiative and was creative with her approach each time. When I look back through the album, it tells a beautiful story of our wedding."

alyssa & troy
