Well I have a confession: I've been meaning to post this set of pics for a few months now. But I do have my reasons. For one, I've been wrapped up in Summer weddings, and two, I really couldn't narrow down my favorite pics. One of the down falls of shooting in new locations and with a stunning subject is that you become attached to the shots. This shoot generated over 1500 pics and sorting through them became a nightmare.
