While most people were off watching fireworks, I spent my fourth of July in Bristol, RI photographing Melanie and Rob's wedding. Melanie is one of my dearest friends. Our friendship began as college roommates, and has continued into our adult lives. Over the years we have shared many experiences. We have traveled overseas together, challenged each other to meet our "yearly" goals, laughed, cried, and celebrated together. This celebration was one I was so honored to have been a part of.
