A Photographer’s Guide to Documenting Memorable Casa Real Weddings

The morning began with a soft breeze gently rustling through the vineyard near the picturesque church where Nigh and Tin exchanged their heartfelt vows. As a wedding photographer, moments like these remind me why I love what I do—documenting the pure essence of love and commitment in each frame.
