When I was photographing a wedding for a friend recently, it really struck me how great a commitment marriage is. It was my first wedding as the official photographer and the pressure really was on, but in a way, the pressure was more vicarious, as I appreciated the responsibility that my friends were taking on, even as only a 17 year old. I think this photo, that I took just as they walked into their new house together, really encapsulates it. But my friends were ready for it, as one day I will be too. Ready for commitment, ready for love and ready for life together. Forever.
