The first involved Dan’s best man, Ryan, and a foldable picnic table. Dan and many of his friends are Buffalo Bills fans, and there is apparently a ridiculous tradition of […]

    Ever since Krysta and Nick approached me to photograph their destination elopement in the Swiss Alps I eagerly waited in anticipation for their date to arrive.
