Originally, hiring a photographer wasn't in the Hinds wedding budget, until the sister of the groom, along with some of Kristin's close friends, pitched in to give Kristin and Shawn the gift of photography for their big day. I never met the bride or groom before the big day, because the girls kept it a surprise until two days before their beach wedding at the Barnegat Lighthouse on Long Beach Island! These high school sweethearts have been dating for almost 10 years and they share a beautiful daughter, Liah, together. Kristin and Shawn are the most easygoing people, so they were a pleasure to work with all day. Their family and friends were also a lot of fun, so it made my job easy! I wish them years of happiness together.
