Thought a lot about this young couple I was fortunate enough to photograph on their wedding day on Ilian Island in February.

40 couples married in one ceremony that we all too poor to get married! None of the couples married could afford the $40 state license fee, rings, wedding clothes etc.

I was so lucky to photograph all of these couples and give them their FIRST printed photograph of their lives.

Hope to see them again soon and continue our Wedding Day Gift Giving Program with @watt_of_love.

Please note the mother-in-law who would not come out of the hut because she “didn’t have a pretty dress.” She also refused to smile because she was chewing tobacco.
