When I posted the first teaser from this wedding I typed the word Fairy Tale into the caption. There was no question or concern over if that was the correct word because everything associated with fairytale and magic and bliss surrounded this entire wedding. Every wedding I’ve captured holds a little bit of magic but […]

I think the photographer – couple relationship is truly key for wedding images to be a success. Aside from all the creativity and technical nitty gritties, the relationship between the person behind the camera and the people in front of it, is important. Many of my couples I know through references, or at least feel […]

There was a first “look” hug, a lemon shot, six-tiered wedding cake, cigars, and even childhood-pictures on the bathroom doors :)! The amount of laughter truly magnified as the […]

There is a soft spot in my heart for this wedding. I know I say that about every wedding (and it’s one thousand percent true!!), but from the very first time I met Kelly + Matt, I immediately fell in love. Not sure if it was Kelly’s infectious laugh, or Matthew’s positive, happy attitude, but […]
