"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Images from shooting my 2nd Bosnian wedding. Quite simply, I loved it. I had no idea what some of the people were saying 80% of the time but it didn't really matter. There was such love and joy that just smiling at someone was enough to get a great reaction. It's events like these that really speak to the photojournalist in me. I am a graduate of the University of Iowa's Journalism department and happy photo assignments like a wedding are a treat. I love having new experiences and thank you Sejla and Damir for having me join you on your special day!
