    Pottttaahhhhhh (the maid of honnnnnnaahhhh) - Seeing these pictures, and the amazing video, has seriously been the highlight of my week (and I had a boy who I am totally twitterpated with fly from California to see me, so that means I LOVE these pictures). They completely capture Kate and Fred, both as a couple and individually. No wonder they have chosen to fly you out to Pennsyvlania for the wedding. You are the exact photographer they need/want to capture their most perfect day! xo
