Christina + Rees: A Wedding with Memories throughout the Tri-Cities

Let me start by saying how wonderful it is to photograph multiple weddings within the same family! After spending so much time with them during such emotional events, each wedding becomes like a little family reunion for us!

The wedding industry is always growing and evolving. Each year couples bring their own tastes and interests into their wedding planning and, as such, the trends are constantly changing. One pattern that has emerged over the past few years is that many couples are opting for smaller, more intimate wedding celebrations.
