Dylan Harbour

In January 2013, Dylan traded in his laptop for a camera. In his former life he was a computer nerd building integration services for big business. Now he spends his weekends hanging with grooms and shooting the parties thrown in celebration of marriage.

While photography is his number one, he still finds some time to code and drink coffee.
