Mo & Shaunagh

What a start to the day, I knew this wasnt going to be any ordinary wedding day from the start. I have known a few of the Bridesmaids and the Bride and Groom for a while now so shooting in front of them comes easier as no one is feeling awkward with me and the camera. Knowing each other helps with nerves and getting that natural look.

I try to put them at ease with my fun loving but relaxe...
