This time of year always reminds me of the days I spent my summers fighting wildland fires. Most of my adult 4th of July's were spent away from my family, sleeping among the trees on a mountain, fighting alongside some of the best guys I've ever known.
These days, summer looks different. And as much as I am nostalgic about my past, I feel lucky that this holiday means family, friends and celebrating the country I love.
Last 4th of July Christina and I were asked to photograph a wedding planned around the holiday. Matt and Jennie love America and have both spent time in our Nation's capital living and working to better our country. Their wedding day perfectly depicted their love for each other, the 4th of July and the United States. Happy Anniversary Jennie and Matt, all the fireworks are for you!
